THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JUSTICE AND FORGIVENESS IN PSALM 103

D F O'Kennedy

Abstract


This article investigates the relationship between justice and forgiveness of injustice in Psalm 103. A point of confusion in the structure of the entire Psalm is the position of verse 6. This article argues that verse 6 may be called a transitional verse which forms a bridge between the first strophe (v.1-5) and the main strophe (v.6/7-18) of the Psalm.
