Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חֶסֶד [“in pause חָֽסֶד”], with suff. חַסְדִּי pl. חֲסָדִיס, const. חַסְדֵי prop. desire, ardour (see the root), whence

(1) in a good sense, zeal towards any one, love, kindness, specially

(a) of men amongst themselves, benignity, benevolence, as shown in mutual benefits; mercy, pity, when referring to those in misfortune, Genesis 21:23; 2 Samuel 10:2 (LXX. often ἔλεος); Job 6:14. The expression often occurs, עָשָׂה חֶסֶד עִם to act kindly towards, Gen. loc. cit.; 2 Samuel 3:8, 9:1, 2 Samuel 9:7 also followed by אֵת Zechariah 7:9 עַל 1 Samuel 20:8 more fully, חֶסֶד וֶאֱמֶת עִם, עָשָׂה Genesis 24:49, 47:29 Joshua 2:14; 2 Samuel 9:3, אֶעֱשֶׂה עִמּוֹחֶסֶד אֱלֹהִים “I will act kindly towards him like unto God.” נָטָה חֶסֶד לְ to turn, or incline, kindness upon any one, Genesis 39:21 more fully, Ezra 7:28, עָלַי הִטֶּה חֶסֶד לִפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ “(God) turned kindness upon me before the king,” and Daniel 1:9, וַיִּתֵּן הָאֱלֹהִים אֶת־דָנִיֵּאל לְחֶסֶד “and God caused that Daniel should obtain favour.”

(b) piety of men towards God. אַנְשֵׁי חֶסֶד=חֲסִידִים the pious saints, Isaiah 57:1.

(c) the grace, favour, mercy of God towards men. Psalms 5:8, 36:6 48:10, etc. It is often joined with אֱמֶת (see אֱמֶת No. 2 ) constant or abiding favour. The same expressions likewise occur as under letter a, as עָשָׂה חֶסֶד עִם Genesis 24:12, 14 Genesis 24:14 followed by לְ Exodus 20:6; Deuteronomy 5:10 עָשָׂה חֶסֶד וֶאֱמֶת עִם 2 Samuel 2:6, 15:20. Pl. חֲסָדִים mercies or benefits (of God), Psalms 89:2, 50 Psalms 89:50, 107:43 Isaiah 55:3, חַסְדֵי דָוִד הַנֶּאֱמָנִים “the sure mercies of David,” abiding mercies such as were bestowed on David [or rather, which were securely promised to David]. Figuratively, God himself is called חֶסֶד q. d. die Huld, Liebe. Psalms 144:2; Jonah 2:9.-Once, like its synonym חֵן, it seems to signify grace in the sense of beauty, Isaiah 40:6. LXX. δόξα, and so 1 Peter 1:24.

(2) in a bad sense, zeal, ardour against any one, envy, hence reproach (see root No. 2). Proverbs 14:34; Leviticus 20:17. Some would also place here Job 6:14.

(3) [Hesed], pr.n. m. 1 Kings 4:10.
