    Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. What does that mean
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 103:13
    The Hebrew word for 'pitieth' (or, pity), means 'to love or to have compassion'. So the metaphor is of an earthly father who naturally demonstrates love, care & compassion. As the father, so too, the pure & immense Love of God, our Heavenly Father, is shown to all those who fear (stand in awe) of Him. And so His Love & compassion toward us would far surpass anything our earthly parents could ever give us & we can have much joy & confidence in this glorious fact.
