And they sang a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to God by your blood out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation;
For I know that my redeemer lives, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
For your Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
Accept, I beseech you, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me your judgments.
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
