God – The Merciful One

He is the “Merciful One”:

From Canonical Scripture (emphasis is mine):

The LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD, the God MERCIFUL and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,” (Exodus 34:6)

From Non-Canonical Scripture (again, emphasis is mine):

For when the generations of the Flood sinned and were confounded in their deeds, saying unto God (Job 21.14): “Depart from us, for we desire not the knowledge of Thy ways.” Then the Holy One, blessed be He, removed me from their midst to be a witness against them in the high Heavens to all the inhabitants of the world, that they may not say: “The MERCIFUL ONE is cruel’.” (Third Enoch, Chapter 4, verse 3)

P/S:

Thus, we ought to follow in His steps:

Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:7)
