I would like to know if I can search for the Hebrew word 'hesed' - loving kindness to see if it is only used when God is the person acting.  Another way are there instances in the Bible where humans exercise 'hesed'.

Thanks for the help!

A Bible Search idea is:

(<Lemma = lbs/he/חֶ֫סֶד:2> OR <Lemma = lbs/he/חֶ֫סֶד:3>) WITHIN 7 WORDS <Person God>

Note: these searches have false positive results so need to examine context for each result. Appears Genesis 20:13 is a human example of hesed.

Logos Hebrew Morphology has homonym numbering of Hesed (learned #3 is part of a person's name).

Using the Bible Browser tool you can find instances where hesed is used of humans. Type kindness into the find box and it will pull up the Senses data set and click on kindness ( act). There are 35 results.
