"Our satisfaction in this matter of [God's forgiveness] is to be taken from his nature. Were he a man, or as the sons of man, it were impossible that, upon such and so many provocations, he should turn away from the fierceness of his anger. But he is God. This gives an infiniteness and an inconceivable boundlessness to the forgiveness that is with him, and exalts it above all our thoughts and ways."
