Intimidade com Deus
And it shall come to pass that, before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
LORD thy God is in the midst of thee, a mighty one who will save. He will rejoice over thee with joy. He will rest in his love. He will joy over thee with singing.
As the hart pants after the water brooks, so my soul pants after thee, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?
Call to me, and I will answer thee, and will show thee great things, and difficult, which thou know not.
Approach God and he will approach you. Cleanse the hands, ye sinners, and purify the hearts, ye double-minded.
1 Ho, everyone who thirsts, come ye to the waters. And he who has no money, come ye, buy, and eat. Yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Why do ye spend money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come to me. Hear, and your soul shall live. And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the faithful holy things (LXX/NT) of David.
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander to the peoples.
5 Behold, thou shall call a nation that thou do not know. And a nation that does not know thee shall run to thee because of LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel, for he has glorified thee.
6 Seek ye LORD while he may be found. Call ye upon him while he is near.
1 O God, thou are my God. I will earnestly seek thee. My soul thirsts for thee, my flesh longs for thee, in a dry and weary land, where is no water.
2 So I have looked upon thee in the sanctuary to see thy power and thy glory.
3 Because thy loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
4 So I will bless thee while I live. I will lift up my hands in thy name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness. And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips
6 when I remember thee upon my bed, [and] meditate on thee in the night-watches.
7 For thou have been my help, and in the shadow of thy wings I will rejoice.
8 My soul follows close after thee. Thy right hand upholds me,
9 but those who seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall be given over to the power of the sword. They shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God. Everyone who swears by him shall glory, for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
And I, the glory that thou have given me, I have given to them, so that they may be one, just as we are one,
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be fully perfected in one, and so that the world may know that thou sent me, and loved them, just as thou loved me.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous so that he will forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from every unrighteousness.
