Isaiah 43:25 - I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions

NIV I, even I, am he who blots out
your transgressions, for my own sake,
and remembers your sins no more.
KJV I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
NASB I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins.
Isaiah 43:25


This verse is probably the high point of grace in the OT. In spite of Israel's utter unworthiness, the Lord in His grace has devised a way that He can forgive their sins and grant righteousness (see note on 61:10), without compromising His holiness. This He would accomplish through the work of His Servant (53:6).

"For My own sake" underscores the exclusion of human merit as a factor in salvation. Cf. also Jer. 31:34

This is the ultimate act of GOD's forgiveness of our sins. If we could be this way this world would be a better place
