God's knot. "And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a three-fold cord is not quickly broken." (Ecclesiastes 4:10) The couple will braid three different colored strands together to symbolize the unity of God, husband, and wife.
"A cord of 3 strands is quickly not broken."-Ecclesiastes 4:12 The Marriage Braid is to be used as an alternative to the unity candle.
