Let The Bridegroom Leave His Room And The Bride Her Chamber

 

The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Joel 2

12

“Yet even now,” says the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;

13

and rend your hearts and not your garments.” Return to the LORD, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and repents of evil.

14

Who knows whether he will not turn and repent, and leave a blessing behind him, a cereal offering and a drink offering for the LORD, your God?

15

Blow the trumpet in Zion; sanctify a fast; call a solemn assembly;

16

gather the people. Sanctify the congregation; assemble the elders; gather the children, even nursing infants. Let the bridegroom leave his room, and the bride her chamber.

17

Between the vestibule and the altar let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep and say, “Spare thy people, O LORD, and make not thy heritage a reproach, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, `Where is their God?’”

18

Then the LORD became jealous for his land, and had pity on his people.

Psalm 51

3

For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.

4

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done that which is evil in thy sight, so that thou art justified in thy sentence and blameless in thy judgment.

5

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.

12

Restore to me the joy of thy salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.

13

Then I will teach transgressors thy ways, and sinners will return to thee.

14

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of thy deliverance.

17

The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
