Show me unfailing kindness like the LORD’s kindness as long as I live … May the LORD show you kindness and faithfulness. … He shows unfailing kindness to his anointed, to David and his descendants forever.
Hezekiah’s heart was proud and he did not respond to the kindness shown him; therefore the LORD’s wrath was on him. … I say to God … You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit.
“For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back. In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord your Redeemer.
This is what the LORD says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let those who boast boast about this: that they understand and know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,”declares the LORD.
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
