Though the wicked is shown favor, he does not learn righteousness.
No matter who you are, what you've done, or where you've been, your God loves you more than He loves anything else, and His favor is upon you for all of your life.
For God so loved this world He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will never perish but have life eternal.
That's what's real.
Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you,
And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you.
