Last time we studied God's mercy, we considered a New Testament word—"eleos" "mercy; kindness or good will toward the miserable and afflicted, joined with a desire to relieve them" (THAYER).
Now, let's focus on an Old Testament word regarding God's mercy. It is the Hebrew word "rahum" "compassionate;—always of God" (BDB). Very interestingly, it is related to the word "rehem" which means "womb."
As a mother shows such tenderness, compassion and mercy to her children, so God is compassionate toward His creation and His children and to sinners!
