Abstract Distinctions in morpho-syntax and meaning between Ps. ciii 12 and the Aramaic quittance formulae must be taken into account, in order to avoid a misappropriation of Mr. Gregory's observations. Legally speaking, the psalm presents God as one who grants pardon for sin, but He cannot be shown to have actually relinquished the grounds for litigation.
