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.
The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he 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 does my soul pant after thee, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; when shall I come and appear before God?
Call unto me, and I will answer thee and show thee great and difficult things, which thou dost not know.
Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [ye] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [ye] double minded.
1 Ho, every one that thirsts, come ye to the waters, and he that has no money; come ye, buy, and eat; come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Why do ye spend money for [that which is] not bread? and your labour for [that which] does not satisfy? Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye [that which is] good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an eternal covenant with you, [even] the sure mercies of David.
4 Behold, I have given him [for] a witness to the peoples, a captain and teacher to the peoples.
5 Behold, thou shalt call a people [that] thou knowest not, and Gentiles [that] did not know thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God and for the Holy One of Israel, for he has honoured thee.
6 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near:
1 O God, thou [art] my God; early will I seek thee; my soul thirsts for thee; my flesh longs for thee in a dry and thirsty land where [there] is no water;
2 in this manner I beheld thee in holiness when I beheld thy power and thy glory.
3 Because thy mercy [is] better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
4 Thus will I bless thee in my life; in thy name shall I lift up my hands.
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 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul has followed hard after thee; thy right hand has upheld me.
9 But those [that] sought my soul, to destroy [it], descended into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall be slain by the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall be praised; for the mouth of those that speak lies shall be stopped.:
And the clarity which thou gavest me I have given them, that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfect in one and that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them as thou hast loved me.
For I know the thoughts that I think concerning you, said the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you the end that you wait for.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
