7 Hebrew Words Every Christian Should Know

DAY 1 OF 7

HESED: Which means LOVE

When I photograph mountains like these in north Georgia, a verse in the Book of Isaiah comes to mind that says: “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken". The Hebrew word translated as 'love' here is hesed which is a hard word to define. Theologian John Oswalt says hesed is "… a completely undeserved kindness and generosity …".

Hesed is not just a feeling, it's an action. It “… intervenes on behalf of loved ones and comes to their rescue" according to Lois Tverberg.

Hesed is not romantic love. It’s faithful. It’s reliable. It’s a wife praying for years for her husband to know God. It’s a dad once again bailing out his drug-addicted son. It’s parents who lovingly care daily for their autistic child.

Today, you can rely on God’s 'hesed' for you no matter what you face.
