Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

7:19 depths of the sea. Micah 7:18-19, climaxing the Old Testament message of the prophet Micah, comprises a beautiful testimony to God’s saving gospel. He pardons all our iniquities forever. Furthermore, He will “subdue” them in our personal lives by the compelling love of His compassion, and our sins will not be remembered any more.

7:20 thou hast sworn. Despite the Assyrians and the Babylonians and all the other enemies of Israel throughout the ages, even the deadly attempted genocide of the Antichrist of the end-times, God will indeed fulfill all His promises to Father Abraham and to all the believing children of Israel.
