Come close to God and He will come close to you. [Recognize that you are] sinners, get your soiled hands clean; [realize that you have been disloyal] wavering individuals with divided interests, and purify your hearts [of your spiritual adultery].
[As you draw near to God] be deeply penitent and grieve, even weep [over your disloyalty]. Let your laughter be turned to grief and your mirth to dejection and heartfelt shame [for your sins].
Humble yourselves [feeling very insignificant] in the presence of the Master, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up and make your lives significant].

Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be tried, smelted, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but the teachers and those who are wise shall understand. [Dan 11:33-35]
No Kidding! Tried, Smelted, And Refined!

That, Too? Blowing In The Wind Of Self-Exaltation, Mind You …
U hoo! Does that ring my bell? Big time as well as my ankles swell! Humor instead of anger. The Master’s kind of humor in Psalms 2. Quote:
WHY DO the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise) an empty scheme?
The kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They say, [Act 4:25-27]
“Let us break Their bands [of restraint] asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us.”
He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Master has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].
