My Soul Longeth

Joshua 11:1–12:24; Luke 17:11-37; Psalm 84:1-12; Proverbs 13:5-6

I really like the verbs the Lord has placed in these passages today!

Verb – a word that typically expresses action, state, or a relation between two things.

My soul longeth. My soul fainteth. My heart and flesh crieth. Blessed is the man that trusteth. The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation. A righteous man hateth lying. A wicked man cometh to shame. Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way.  Wickedness overthroweth the sinner. Tomorrow will I deliver. Joshua took the whole land. Joshua gave it for an inheritance. The land rested from war.

Longeth, Fainteth, Crieth, Trusteth
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God. – Psalm 84:2

For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee. – Psalm 84:10-12

Cometh (not with observation)
And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. – Luke 17:20-21

And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together. – Luke 17:37

Hateth, Keepeth, Overthroweth
A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame. Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner. 
– Proverbs 13:5-6

Deliver
And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them: for tomorrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire. 
– Joshua 11:6

Took, Gave, Rested
So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD said unto Moses; and Joshua gave it for an inheritance unto Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the land rested from war.
– Joshua 11:23
