“Mercy-compassion or forgiveness show toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.”


2 Chronicles 6:42, “O Lord God, do not turn Your face from Your anointed. Remember the mercies of Your servant David.” Modern English Version

I looked up the word “mercies” in other versions of the Bible:

  • Great love, New International Version
  • Unfailing love, New Living Translation
  • Steadfast love, English Standard Version
  • Lovingkindness, New American Standard Bible
  • Gracious love, International Standard Bible

The love and compassion given to King David are available to all. Every morning, His compassion and forgiveness are new. All I need do is ask.

Lamentations 3:23, “Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.” New Living Translation
