May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the Lord.
The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing. … For the Lord will take delight in you. … As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you. … Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.
Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep. … Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin. … May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. … Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. … And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice.
I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! … Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord!
