  • יהוה’s Mercy

    for I יהוה thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:5b-6, Deuteronomy 5:9b-10

    And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of יהוה before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. Exodus 33:19

    What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? Romans 9:14-24

    With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful, and with the upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright. With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury. And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down. 2 Samuel 22:26-28

    (For יהוה thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them. Deuteronomy 4:31

    And he said, יהוה God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart: 1 Kings 8:23

    And said, O יהוה God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and shewest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts: 2 Chronicles 6:14

    And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of יהוה; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man. 1 Chronicles 21:13

    And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying, If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help. 2 Chronicles 20:8,9

    For if ye turn again unto יהוה, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for יהוה your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him. 2 Chronicles 30:9

    But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty. So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth. Job 5:15,16

    He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression. Job 36:15

    יהוה also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Psalms 9:9

    For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith יהוה; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. Psalms 12:5

    But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. Psalms 13:5

    Thy mercy, O יהוה, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Psalms 36:5

    But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever. Psalms 52:8

    But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. Psalms 59:16

    Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work. Psalms 62:12

    For יהוה heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners. Psalms 69:33

    O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever. Psalms 74:19

    I will sing of the mercies of יהוה for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens. Psalms 89:1,2

    Bless יהוה, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

    Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

    Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

    Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

    יהוה executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

    He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

    יהוה is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

    He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

    He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

    For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

    As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

    Like as a father pitieth his children, so יהוה pitieth them that fear him.

    For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

    As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

    For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

    But the mercy of יהוה is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children;

    To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.Psalms 103:2-18

    Who is like unto יהוה our God, who dwelleth on high, Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth! He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye יהוה. Psalms 113:5-9

    Gracious is יהוה, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. יהוה preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. Psalms 116:5,6

    O praise יהוה, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of יהוה endureth for ever. Praise ye יהוה. Psalms 117:1,2

    The earth, O יהוה, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes. Psalms 119:64

    יהוה is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. יהוה is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. Psalms 145:8,9

    Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in יהוה his God:

    Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

    Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. יהוה looseth the prisoners:

    יהוה openeth the eyes of the blind: יהוה raiseth them that are bowed down: יהוה loveth the righteous:

    יהוה preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

    יהוה shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye יהוה. Psalms 146:5-10

    For יהוה will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob. And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of יהוה for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors. And it shall come to pass in the day that יהוה shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, Isaiah 14:1-3

    And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto יהוה of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto יהוה because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. Isaiah 19:20

    And therefore will יהוה wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for יהוה is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee. Isaiah 30:18,19

    When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I יהוה will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together: That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of יהוה hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. Isaiah 41:17-20

    Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith יהוה; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith יהוה, and I will not keep anger for ever. Jeremiah 3:12

    Thus saith יהוה; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his dwellingplaces; and the city shall be builded upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof. And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them. Jeremiah 30:18-20

    Be not afraid of the king of Babylon, of whom ye are afraid; be not afraid of him, saith יהוה: for I am with you to save you, and to deliver you from his hand. And I will shew mercies unto you, that he may have mercy upon you, and cause you to return to your own land. Jeremiah 42:11,12

    It is of יהוה’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22,23

    For I am יהוה, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi 3:6

    Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; Ezekiel 39:25

    Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek יהוה, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Hosea 10:12

    In that day, saith יהוה, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and יהוה shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever. Micah 4:6,7

    And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. Luke 1:50

    For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. Romans 11:30-32

    Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 2 Corinthians 1:3

    Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Titus 3:5

    Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

    Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. James 5:11

    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3
