Looking for some forgiveness Bible verses? “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.” – Proverbs 30:5.
“But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.” (Psalm 130:4) Suppose the question had been left open – forgiveness or no forgiveness? We know that we have offended God; but suppose it had been left a moot point for us to find out, if possible, whether there was any forgiveness, where could we find it? We might turn to the works of God in nature, and say, “Well, he is good, who loads the trees with fruit, and bids the fields yield so plenteous a harvest;” but when we remember how his lightnings sometimes strike the oak, and how his hurricanes swallow up whole navies in the deep, we shall be ready to say that he is terrible as well as tender; and we might be puzzled to know whether he would or would not forgive sin, more especially as we see all creatures die, and no exception made to that rule. If we knew that death was a punishment for sin, we should be led to fear that there was no forgiveness to be had from the hand of God; but when we turn to this open page, which God has so graciously written for our instruction, we are left in doubt no longer, for here we have it positively declared, “There is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.” Exclusively in the Bible is this revelation made; but the words of my text are not exclusive. This passage is but one among a thousand echoes from the throne of God which proclaim his willingness to save sinners. (Charles H. Spurgeon, Forgiveness)
