mercy

compassion for the miserable

Its object is misery. By the atoning sacrifice of Christ a way is open for the exercise of mercy towards the sons of men, in harmony with the demands of truth and righteousness (Gen. 19:19; Ex. 20:6; 34:6-7; Ps. 85:10; 86:15-16).

In Christ, mercy and truth meet together.

Mercy is also a Christian grace (Matt. 5:7; 18:33-35).
