To the Wise | If we always say what’s on our mind or consistently apply consequences to its fullest extent, we lack compassion. What if Yahuah lacked compassion toward us?
Hebrew | Chemel (חמל) is one of the Hebrew words we translate as compassion and spare; although, it is literally to hold back from fulfilling something including consequences due or one’s words or, as we say down South, to spare the rod or bite the tongue.
It’s explicitly defined in Job 20:13 which is translated below:
He spare (to hold one’s words) upon her (the dysfunctional things in the mouth) and not he leaves them and he withholds them in the middle of his palate.
