“'This day is holy to the Lord your God; do not mourn or weep.' For all the people wept as they heard the words of the Law. 10 Then he said to them, 'Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.'”
