LETS US NOW LOOK AT SPECIFIC INSTANCES THAT SPEAK BY THE LORD’S COMPASSION IN SCRIPTURES
MATHEW 9:35-36 “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.36: But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
MATHEW 14:13-21 “When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities. 14: And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. 15: And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. 16: But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. 17: And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.18: He said, Bring them hither to me.19: And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.20: And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.21: And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.
MATHEW 15:32-38“Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.33: And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? 34: And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.35: And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.36: And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.37: And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.38: And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.39: And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.
MATHEW 20: 29-34“And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.30: And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.31: And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.32: And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?33: They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.34: So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.
LUKE 13:10-17“And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.11: And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.12: And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.13: And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.14: And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.15: The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? 16: And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? 17: And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.

And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.15: And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.16: And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.17: And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.
