Conviction » From God

To turn aside man from doing, And pride from man He concealeth. He keepeth back his soul from corruption, And his life from passing away by a dart. And he hath been reproved With pain on his bed, And the strife of his bones is enduring. And his life hath nauseated bread, And his soul desirable food. His flesh is consumed from being seen, And high are his bones, they were not seen! And draw near to the pit doth his soul, And his life to those causing death. If there is by him a messenger, An interpreter -- one of a thousand, To declare for man his uprightness: Then He doth favour him and saith, 'Ransom him from going down to the pit, I have found an atonement.' Fresher is his flesh than a child's, He returneth to the days of his youth. He maketh supplication unto God, And He accepteth him. And he seeth His face with shouting, And He returneth to man His righteousness. He looketh on men, and saith, 'I sinned, And uprightness I have perverted, And it hath not been profitable to me. He hath ransomed my soul From going over into the pit, And my life on the light looketh.' Lo, all these doth God work, Twice -- thrice with man, To bring back his soul from the pit, To be enlightened with the light of the living.
