He caused all their captors to show compassion toward them.
But Jesus wouldn't let him. Instead, he told him, "Go home to your family, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been to you."
1 Timothy 1:13
In the past I was a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a violent man. But I received mercy because I acted ignorantly in my unbelief,
1 Peter 2:10
Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God. Once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
So let us keep on coming boldly to the throne of grace, so that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
For just as you disobeyed God in the past but now have received his mercy because of their disobedience,
so they, too, have now disobeyed. As a result, they may receive mercy because of the mercy shown to you.
1 Corinthians 7:25
Now concerning virgins, although I do not have any command from the Lord, I will give you my opinion as one who by the Lord's mercy is trustworthy.
2 Corinthians 4:1
Therefore, since we have this ministry through the mercy shown to us, we do not get discouraged.
Now may peace be on all those who live by this principle, and may mercy be on the Israel of God.
