Introduction Hesed is an interesting and fascinating word that has a wide range of meaning. This paper will explore the use of hesed in family relationships, relationships in general, and the religious use of hesed. The paper will conclude by applying the truth of hesed to everyday by life by examining how many believers who feel the Lord is far from them do not understand the character and attributes of God, and how to overcome those feelings. Lexicon According to the BDB, hesed means goodness or kindness.
In this way, says Abraham, she can show her hesed for him. You will not deal falsely with me or my children or my descendants.
They dream puzzling dreams, but Joseph interprets them for them.
After interpreting the dream of the Cupbearer he tells him, " When all goes well with you, remember me and show me hesed; mention me to Pharaoh and get me out of this prison.

Hushai was not behaving in a manner consistent with his hesed for David. A friend would not normally turn his back on a friend like that. Barzillai of Gilead stood by David when he fled from Absalom. Therefore David, on his deathbed, charges Solomon to show hesed to the sons of Barzillai, and to "let them be among those who eat at your table.
