“Let not mercy and trueth forsake thee: bind them about thy necke, write them vpon the table of thine heart.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
3:3 Mercy - Mercy denotes all benignity, charity, and readiness to do good to others: truth or faithfulness respects all those duties which we owe to God or man, which we have special obligation from the rules of justice. Bind them - Like a chain, wherewith persons adorn their necks. Table - In thy mind and heart, in which all God's commands are to be received and engraven.
