- Benevolent toward all.
- adj. All-loving, or infinitely good, usually in reference to a deity or supernatural being, for example, 'God'. Its use is often with regards to the divine triad, whereby a deity is described to be simultaneously omniscient, omnipotent and omnibenevolent. This triad is used especially with the Christian god, Yahweh.
- From Latin omni- meaning 'all', and benevolent, meaning 'good'. This may be a recent creation, extrapolating the contextual meanings of 'omniscient' and 'omnipotent' to describe, in a consistent manner, this third divine quality. (Wiktionary)
