atawhaitanga Play

1. (noun) compassion, courtesy.

Otirā kīhai a Ihu i tuku i a ia, engari i mea atu ki a ia, haere ki tōu whare, ki ōu whanaunga, ka kōrero ki a rātou i ngā mea nui i meinga e te Ariki ki a koe, i tana atawhaitanga hoki i a koe (PT Maka 5:19). / Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
