“I will betroth you to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you to Me In righteousness and justice, in lovingkindness and mercy;
I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, and you shall know the Lord.”
The five words of God’s promise are each precious. But we will consider only three:
Lovingkindness חסד [hesed] = covenant keeping, faithful love
Mercy רַחֲמִֽים [rachamim] = tender, mother-like love
Faithfulness אֱמוּנָה [‘emunah]= firmness, steadfastness, without wavering
This promise is made in the same context as yesterday’s verse – God’s discipline- and confirms His promise of redemption and restoration.
PRAISE GOD FOR HIS PROMISE OF REDEMPTION AND RESTORATION.
