Bible Quotes
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
(Psalm 37:4) ESV

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling! Then I will go to the altar of God, to God my exceeding joy, and I will praise you with the lyre, O God, my God. Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.
(Psalm 43:3-5) ESV

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
(Isaiah 61:1) ESV

He said also to the man who had invited him, “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”
(Luke 14:12-14) ESV

 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
(Luke 15:7) ESV

Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.
(Luke 15:10) ESV1

Delight and the Bible

"To delight" is most frequently expressed by chaphets, which means originally "to bend" (compare Job 40:17, "He moveth his tail"), hence, "to incline to," "take pleasure in." It is used of God's pleasure in His people (Numbers 14:8 2 Samuel 22:20 Psalm 18:19, etc.), and in righteousness, etc. (Isaiah 66:4 Jeremiah 9:24 Micah 7:18, etc.), also of man's delight in God and His will (Psalm 40:8Psalm 73:25; the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American), "There is none upon earth that I desire besides thee"), and in other objects (Genesis 34:19 1 Samuel 18:22 Esther 2:14 Isaiah 66:3); sha`a`, "to stroke," "caress," "be fond of," occurs in Psalm 94:19, "Thy comforts delight my soul"; Psalm 119:16, 47, 70, "I will delight myself in thy statutes." Similarly, Paul says (Romans 7:22), "I delight (sunedomai) in (margin, the Revised Version (British and American) "Greek with") the law of God after the inward man." This is the only occurrence of the word in the New Testament.

The Revised Version (British and American) has "delight" for "desire" (Nehemiah 1:11 Psalm 22:8Psalm 51:16), for "observe," different reading (Proverbs 23:26), "no delight in" for "smell in" (Amos 5:21), "delightest in me" for "favorest me" (Psalm 41:11), "his delight shall be in" (m "Hebrew `scent' ") for "of quick understanding" (Isaiah 11:3).2
