If you turn to him with all your heart and with all your soul,
to do what is true before him,
then he will turn to you
and will no longer hide his face from you.
So now see what he has done for you;
acknowledge him at the top of your voice.
Bless the Lord of righteousness,
and exalt the King of the ages.
In the land of my exile I acknowledge him
and show his power and majesty to a nation of sinners:
‘Turn back, you sinners, and do what is right before him;
perhaps he may look with favor upon you and show you mercy.’
As for me, I exalt my God,
and my soul rejoices in the King of heaven.
Many Protestant Christians don't often read the Apocrypha. From time to time it is worth dipping into. This passage about repententance speaks well to us. Turn to God with our whole self, heart and soul. We ought to notice what God has done for us and the shout about it 'at the top of your voice.' Let's bless the Lord and exalt him. Did you notice that Tobit even did this whilst in exile. Perhaps the lesson is to remember God when things are tough.
May I acknowledge you always, Lord. May I exalt you at the top of my voice. For Jesus's sake. Amen.
