    Jean, you got me thinking:

    [The word in verse 9, which the ESV translates “mercy,” comes from the Hebrew word for “womb.” God’s compassion for fallen mankind is analogous to (but surpasses) the compassion of a mother for her baby in the womb.]

    The ESV translation for “mercy” in verse 8 comes from a different Hebrew word than its translation for “mercy” in verse 9 (hesed vs. ramach). What a tender distinction.

    Keep up the good research and look forward to your next post.

    “The inclusivity of the “all” in the proclamation of the Lord’s universal goodness and mercy is remarkable.”

    Indeed

    Joel,

    If there’s room for MLD (uh, I mean me 🙂 ), then there’s room for just about anyone.

    I’m very grateful that the Lord has led me to a tradition in which I do not have to pretend I’m somebody else.

    Peace brother!

    I hear you Jean. I may have to get my butt back in an LCMS pew for that reason alone. Even if I have to go by myself. Thank you brother.

    Good to all, He sends rain on the just and the unjust.
