Compassionate God is one way of translating this Hebrew name of God. Rakhum refers to a deep inward feeling of loving concern, usually of a superior for an inferior and perhaps drawing meaning from the love of a mother because rekhem means “womb.” Pity, compassion, and mercy are all part of it. Sometimes He is called the Merciful God instead.
