Song of Songs 5:2 (Amplified Bible)

I went to sleep, but my heart stayed awake. [I dreamed that I heard] the voice of my beloved as he knocked [at the door of my mother’s cottage]. Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my spotless one [he said], for I am wet with the [heavy] night dew; my hair is covered with it.

Job 11:13-16 (Amplified Bible)

If you set your heart aright and stretch out your hands to [God],

If you put sin out of your hand and far away from you and let not evil dwell in your tents;

Then can you lift up your face to Him without stain [of sin, and unashamed]; yes, you shall be steadfast and secure; you shall not fear.

For you shall forget your misery; you shall remember it as waters that pass away.

The LORD JESUS will do marvelous things for you. But you have to do these things first: (Job 11:13-16)

4. Let not evil dwell in your tents (bodies) - use your bodies as living sacrifice

I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.

I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

5. Then GOD will approach you, accept you.
