The Messianic 130th Psalm sings in its key verse: "There is forgiveness with Thee." The Hebrew salach (forgiveness, to forgive) is generally rendered in the Septuagint ι̇λασυός ι̇λάσχομαι. Its primary significance is to shelter, to cover. The classics transposed its meaning to the religious procedure of the conciliation of the gods; with them ι̇λάσχομαι denotes obtaining the favor of the gods. Homer always uses it so.
