Forgiving, lenient (8)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'forgiving' is the first definition.
(similar in meaning)

'lenient' is the second definition.

(Other definitions for merciful that I've seen before include "Showing pity or leniency" , "Kind" , "showing forbearance" , "Clement - forbearing" , "Humane" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
