6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.
6 By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.
6 Guilt is banished through love and truth; Fear-of-God deflects evil.

6 Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin. By fearing the Lord, people avoid evil.
