The More You Know Him

Psalm 9:10 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
10 And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity].

From NetBible Ps 9:10
Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek You.

10 If you keep My commandments and obey My teaching, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. 11 I have told you these things so that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy may be made full and complete and overflowing.
