FILL IN WITH THE MOST APPROPRIATE WORD FROM LESSON 8
1. Deliverance from sin; atonement for guilt
2. Retrieval; reclamation; reformation
A word similar in meaning is "retribution" but note that retribution refers to a more punishing aspect of justice, and can also refer to the payment itself (The payment was retribution for his theft). Redemption is a more positive form of consequences, and thus is used in a lighter tone.
