Matthew 5:7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. [Those who forgive, will be forgiven. Mercy triumphs over judgment. Those who do not forgive others, who stay angry, who hold grudges, who resent others, will not be forgiven by God. The Lord desires mercy, not sacrifice. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Mat 6:12. Let your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping on you. Psa 33:22. George Fox wrote: "Forgiveness is more than with the mouth." From the Word of the Lord within: "Forgive and forget."]
