Daily Bible Verse - 8/12/2007 - Psalm 43:4

NIV Then will I go to the altar of God,
to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you with the harp,
O God, my God.
KJV Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
NASB Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God my exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.
Psalm 43:4
Notice the progression (from the previous verse) to verse 4:

To Your holy hill;
To Your tabernacle;
To the altar of God;
To God my exceeding joy.

The true worshiper is satisfied with neither a geographical location nor a building nor an altar. He must get through to God Himself!
