JahWoek, I Bredrin,
It brings a twang of pain in I heart to hear the I "wondering where Iman stand before the Most High" because of tatoos from before the I come to know Jah.
"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled."/ "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see JAH."
"Who shall ascend into the hill of the JAH? or who shall stand in his hola place?
He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive the blessing from JAH, and righteousness from the God of his salvation."
"But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,
And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife,
And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment;
He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man,
Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord JAH Rastafari."
May the words of InI mouth and the Iditations of InI heart be acceptable unto JAH Rastafari, Ancient of Days, the Almighty I, Emperor Haile I Selassie I.
If the I's thoughts and actions are focused 'pon righteousness old tatoos can never cover that up. Bless.
