ak -sep´tans : A rendering of the Hebrew רצון , recōn , "delight," found only in Isaiah 60:7 . It pictures God's delight in His redeemed people in the Messianic era, when their gifts, in joyful and profuse abundance, "shall come up with acceptance on mine altar." With "accepted" and other kindred words it implies redeeming grace as the basis of Divine favor. It is the "living, holy sacrifice" that is "acceptable to God" (Romans 12:1 ; compare Titus 3:4-6 ).
