Psalm 78:38 But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: Yea, many a time turned he his anger away, And did not stir up all his wrath.
I am afraid we do not really know the God of the Bible. We malign His character. We think of Him in unbiblical terms. Notice in this verse, He is full of compassion. That is how He is. That is His character.
Because of who He is He forgave His people when they betrayed Him and failed Him. He didn’t destroy them when they knew that He should have. He turns away His wrath many times. He doesn’t get angry when He rightfully should. He is a good God He is full of compassion.
