Merciful Husband

Proverbs 11:17 "The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh."

I am far from being a Biblical scholar so don't make to much of this it's just a thought that ran through my mind this morning as I was reading my daily Proverbs and I came across the verse above, and I was reminded of Ephesians 5:28 "So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself." and so I have concluded that "He that is cruel and unmerciful to his wife troubles his own flesh: Do good to your soul, love your wife and be merciful to her."
