God is MAJESTIC-- He is supreme in His greatness and authority, lofty in His dignity, and regal in His sovereignty.
Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you— majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens.
You are radiant with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game.
God is MERCIFUL-- He has compassion on us and does not punish us as our sins deserve.
For the LORD your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your ancestors, which he confirmed to them by oath.
But in your great mercy you did not put an end to them or abandon them, for you are a gracious and merciful God.
Yet he was merciful; he forgave their iniquities and did not destroy them. Time after time he restrained his anger and did not stir up his full wrath.
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.
And speaking of attributes that begin with M, here is a Psalm that extols the majesty and the might of the Lord:
The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty;
the LORD is robed in majesty
and is armed with strength.
The world is firmly established;
it cannot be moved.
Your throne was established long ago;
you are from all eternity.
The seas have lifted up, O LORD,
the seas have lifted up their voice;
the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea—
the LORD on high is mighty.
Your statutes stand firm;
holiness adorns your house
for endless days, O LORD.
