“A bruised reed he will not break.”
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.—He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.—Thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite. For I will not contend forever, nor will I always be angry; for the spirit would grow faint before me, and the breath of life that I made.”
“I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak.”—Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.—“Behold, your God…. He will come and save you.”
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from,… the master of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.”
“The ear tests words as the palate tastes food.”—“I believed, and so I spoke.”—I know whom I have believed.—With great delight I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
God’s kindness.—He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up to salvation—if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.
Let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy.
