Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible
if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious:
Young's Literal Translation

And there is still a reference to the sucking child that, having once tasted its mother's milk, ever after desires and longs for it. As they were born of God, and had tasted his goodness, they would naturally desire the same pure unadulterated milk of the word.

Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,
who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age
