He was altogether lovely, Song of Solomon 5:16; holy, righteous, good, faithful, true, just, guileless and sinless, spotless, innocent, harmless (Luke 1:3s; Acts 4:27; Is. 53:11; Matt. 19:16; Is. 11:5; John 1:14; John 7:18; Zec. 9:9; John 5:30; Is. 53-9; I Pet. 2:22; John 846; I Pet. 1 :19; Matt. 274.). He was forgiving, Luke 23 '34; merciful, Heb. 2 :17, and loving, John 13:1, 15:13; compassionate and benevolent, Is. 40:11; Luke 19 41; Matt. 4:23, 24; Acts 10:38. He was meek, lowly in heart; patient, humble and long suffering, Matt 11 -29,27 :14; I Tim. 1 :16; Luke 22 -27.
