Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  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).
