check - ceremony reading

We found a bible verse that we like! We haven't talked to our pastor about it yet...I don't think he would object to it though. I like that it's not a common one (that I know of anyway).


Allow us to live together to a happy old age.

 

A reading from the Book of Tobit 8:4b-8


On their wedding night Tobiah arose from bed and said to his wife,

“Sister, get up. Let us pray and beg our Lord
to have mercy on us and to grant us deliverance.”
Sarah got up, and they started to pray
and beg that deliverance might be theirs.
They began with these words:
“Blessed are you, O God of our fathers;
praised be your name forever and ever.
Let the heavens and all your creation
praise you forever.
You made Adam and you gave him his wife Eve
to be his help and support;
and from these two the human race descended.
You said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone;
let us make him a partner like himself.’
Now, Lord, you know that I take this wife of mine
not because of lust,
but for a noble purpose.
Call down your mercy on me and on her,
and allow us to live together to a happy old age.”
They said together, “Amen, amen.”
The word of the Lord.

    I've seen that passage from Tobit in the Catholic Ceremony guide book.  If I didn't have my heart set on Ruth 1:16-17 (My people are your people) for my first reading, Tobit would've been a strong consideration.

    Lovely!  I don't know if I could ever call a bible verse "cliche", but let's just say it is refreshing to go to a wedding that DOESN'T using 1 Corinthians =]  I'm using Song of Solomon
