How beautiful are your sandaled feet, princess! The curves of your thighs are like jewelry, the handiwork of a master.
Yahweh my Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like those of a deer and enables me to walk on mountain heights! [For the choir director: on stringed instruments.]
"But the father told his slaves, 'Quick! Bring out the best robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the herald, who proclaims peace, who brings news of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How welcome are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things!
Now everything is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed the message of reconciliation to us.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ; certain that God is appealing through us, we plead on Christ's behalf, "Be reconciled to God."
He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
