This volume, republished without revision from the 1978 edition, offers an analysis of the development of usage of the Hebrew term hesed. Judgments are made about the relative age of the texts in which the term appears, and connotations of the word are traced chronologically from earlier to later texts. The study encompasses secular usage, human religious behavior called hesed, and the hesed of God.
