Hello, my name is Douglas Collins. I hope I am putting this post in the right section.
I am in the process of studying compassion. I find that there are four different words translated as compassion, mercy, or pity in the KJV. They are(according to the Strong's Concordance):
sumpatheo means to feel sympathy
splagchnizomai means to feel sympathy, to pity
eleeo means to compassiate
oikteiro means to exercise pity
I can't seem to fully understand ...
