Surely I have been a sinner from birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. -And your fame has spread among the nations on account of your beauty, because the splendour I had given you made your beauty perfect, declared the Sovereign Lord. – “Lord, I am a sinful man!” – How beautiful you are my darling! Oh, how beautiful!” – Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes. – All beautiful you are, my darling; there is no flaw in you. – When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. – “Take heart, son; your sons are forgiven.”
I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. – You have been given fullness in Christ. – Perfect in Christ.
But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of God. – That you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
