Wesley's Notes on the Bible

6:8 He - God hath already told you in his word, with what you ought to come before him.

To love mercy - To be kind, merciful and compassionate to all, not using severity towards any. Walk humbly with thy God - Keep up a constant fellowship with God, by humble, holy faith.
