New Defender's Study Bible Notes
25:6 tender mercies. This is the first of ten references in the Old Testament (all in the Book of Psalms) to God’s “tender mercies” (one word in the Hebrew). There are two New Testament references to God’s “tender mercy” (Luke 1:78; James 5:11). The association here with God’s “loving kindness” is a beautifully felicitous choice of words to describe God’s great love for His people.
