God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
Thus says the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel and its Holy One, To the despised One, To the One abhorred by the nation, To the Servant of rulers, "Kings will see and arise, Princes will also bow down, Because of the LORD who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel who has chosen You."
The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble, And He knows those who take refuge in Him.
And He said to him, "Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments."
Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way.
'The LORD is slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generations.'
But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.
Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth;
God's Mercy » Is part of his character
Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations."
Righteous are You, O LORD, And upright are Your judgments.
Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; Yes, our God is compassionate.
O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous; For the righteous God tries the hearts and minds.
