Wonderful article. Thank you! I have seen the tender mercies in my life and try to always remember that the Lord is in charge. "HE'S GOT THIS "always and forever
Well done...I did the same a number of years ago. When looking up mercy I gravitated to also search the hebrew or greek word from which it was translated. It was paradigm changing...!
Thanks for your insightful comment. I have a paper I prepared with every use of the phrase "tender mercies" in the Standard Works, and there are three in the Book of Mormon: two in Ist Nephi and one in Ether. I did not focus on the source of the phrase in my article, but rather on the way in which those uses supported what I had learned about those mercies. I probably should have included something from the Book of Mormon.
I noticed that you are quoting mainly from the OT. Interestingly there are also a great number of passages in the Book of Mormon about the tender mercies of the Lord.
Thank you for your efforts and thoughts and writings, Bro Gibbons. I have learned and felt so much in many of your articles, especially this one.
