I am dark, but comely. Song of Songs 1:5
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. — Thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God.
I am a sinful man, O Lord. —Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair. I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. — Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.
When I would do good, evil is present with me. — Be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) dwelleth no good thing — Ye are complete in him. — Perfect in Christ Jesus.
Ye are washed, … ye are sanctified, … ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. — That ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
