      "Isaiah chapter 62 - 4 : Thou shalt no more be termed forsaken; neither shall thy land anymore be termed desolate : but thou shalt be called Heohizibah and thy land Beulah; for the Lord delighted i thee and thy land shall be married." this one was my favorite.

      I also was studying Psalm 27 where the Psalmist talks about the one thing He seeks after. most translations say to behold His beauty but it actually translates His delightfulness. This goes along with your hub message that we are to delight ourselves in Him.
