Compassion in the OT People always seem to see "the God of the OT" as a "God of Wrath". A boy today in a class I was substituting said, " 'I like God. He's compassionate!' then I remember the OT!". Can I please get as many examples from the OT of God's compassion. 1) Try for examples of compassion to gentiles esp., not just Israel 2) Try for examples which show more compassion than the examples of God's wrath show his wrath. 3) Also need examples of His wrath in the NT. 4) Also, explinations for why he was wrathful in those places in the OT- eg slay all but virgins, kill everything that breathes, stone father and entire family, every man kill His brother, "virgins will be ripped open, babies dashed against rocks", etc. Thx a ton.
