49:13  Sing, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth: break forth into singing, O mountains. For the Lord has comforted His people, and will have mercy on His afflicted.
49:14  Let not Sion say, The Lord hath forsaken me, and the Lord hath forgotten me.
55:7b  Return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon you: and to your God, for He will abundantly pardon.
30:18  Therefore will the Lord wait, that He may be gracious unto you: and therefore will He be exalted, that He may have mercy upon you. For the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are they that wait for his salvation.
Sing, O heavens…
