Hosea 2:19-20

You will be my spouse forever, bethrothed in justice and integrity; we will be united in love and tenderness. I will espouse you in faithfulness and you will come to know Yahweh.

My Lord, here are the words You use - spouse, bethrothed, united, espouse and know. All these words and promises pertain to marriage. You make a covenant of love with me who am nothing but a tiny speck in all creation. You take this nothing and you raise it up to Yourself and You make promises that will last eternally. I can believe You because Your Name is also Truth. You promise me knowledge of Yourself, grant me the grace to receive this knowledge of You. Amen
