Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them. … Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, LORD. They rejoice in your name all day long; they exult in your righteousness.
Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name. … Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. … My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you—I, whom you have delivered.
Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart … I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches … I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word. … Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart. … I rejoice in your promise like one who finds great spoil. … Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King. … May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the LORD.
