Because of your great compassion, Psalm 51:1
“But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not
even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his
chest in sorrow, saying, ‘O God, be merciful to me, for I am

home justified before God. For those who exalt themselves
will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be
exalted.” Luke 18:13-14
