But not only will the bride dance; God Himself will dance! In his prophecy of the end time restoration of His people, the prophet Zephaniah says –

NKJ: Zephaniah 3:17-18 The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly, Who are among you, To whom its reproach is a burden.

In this passage, the second instance of the word “rejoice” is from the Hebrew word “giyl” (Strong’s #1523) which literally means “go round or about, be exited with levity” (9). The same Hebrew letters spell another word that means “circle” (10), as in “circle dance”. Thus the New Jerusalem Bible translates the passage this way –

NJB: Zephaniah 3:17-18 Yahweh your God is there with you, the warrior-Saviour. He will rejoice over you with happy song, he will renew you by his love, he will dance with shouts of joy for you, as on a day of festival. I have taken away your misfortune; no longer need you bear the disgrace of it.

And, as we look forward to the return of our Bridegroom Messiah – we know that we will be celebrating in the dance with Him. He will dance with shouts of joy for us, and we will dance with Him, after all, it’s part of His culture.
