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 your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over you with singing.
As the hart pants after the water brooks, so pants my soul after you, 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 you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, all of you sinners; and purify your hearts, all of you double minded.
1 Ho, every one that thirsts, come all of you to the waters, and he that has no money; come all of you, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2 Wherefore do all of you spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfies not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat all of you 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 everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
5 Behold, you shall call a nation that you know not, and nations that knew not you shall run unto you because of the LORD your God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he has glorified you.
6 Seek all of you the LORD while he may be found, call all of you upon him while he is near:
1 O God, you are my God; early will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see your power and your glory, so as I have seen you in the sanctuary.
3 Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.
4 Thus will I bless you while I live: I will lift up my hands in your name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips:
6 When I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the night watches.
7 Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul follows hard after you: your right hand upholds me.
9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall 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 glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
And the glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them, as you have loved me.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
