Can God both forgive and repay?
How can the following verses be reconciled:
1) As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Psalms 103:12
2) Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. Rev. 22:12.
Both these ideas are major teachings of the entire Bible, both that God forgives our sins and repays people according to their deeds.
How does this work?
