Pity can mean to love very dearly.

and cherish all of His creation.

Pity can show tender love and affection.
Pity can mean to be unwilling to give up.
Pity is God’s mercy and tolerance toward man.
This word lays bare God’s attitude and heart.
Only the Creator has pity on mankind,
the Creator holds for them endless affection.
Only the Creator can bestow mercy on mankind
and cherish all of His creation.

3
The people of Nineveh were just as corrupt
and as violent as the people of Sodom,
but their repentance caused God to change His heart.
So He decided not to destroy them.
The people of Nineveh embraced God’s commands
with honest submission and repentance for their sins,
as well as their true and heartfelt deeds.
So God bestowed His pity on them.

4
No person can duplicate God’s reward,
nor God’s pity for mankind.
No one can possess God’s mercy or tolerance,
nor God’s sincere feelings towards humanity.
Only the Creator has pity on mankind,
the Creator holds for them endless affection.
Only the Creator can bestow mercy on mankind
and cherish all of His creation.
