He caused all their conquerors to have pity on them.
But Jesus did not permit him to do so. Instead, he said to him, "Go to your home and to your people and tell them what the Lord has done for you, that he had mercy on you."
1 Timothy 1:13
even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor, and an arrogant man. But I was treated with mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief,
1 Peter 2:10
You once were not a people, but now you are God's people. You were shown no mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Therefore let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace whenever we need help.
Just as you were formerly disobedient to God, but have now received mercy due to their disobedience,
so they too have now been disobedient in order that, by the mercy shown to you, they too may now receive mercy.
1 Corinthians 7:25
With regard to the question about people who have never married, I have no command from the Lord, but I give my opinion as one shown mercy by the Lord to be trustworthy.
2 Corinthians 4:1
Therefore, since we have this ministry, just as God has shown us mercy, we do not become discouraged.
And all who will behave in accordance with this rule, peace and mercy be on them, and on the Israel of God.
