The Old Heart – 3

Each heart knows its own bitterness … Even in laughter the heart may ache, and rejoicing may end in grief.

The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.

Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, from the plots of evildoers … They plot injustice and say,  “We have devised a perfect plan!” Surely the human mind and heart are cunning.

Haughty eyes and a proud heart—the unplowed field of the wicked—produce sin.

One’s own folly leads to ruin, yet the heart rages against the Lord.

A person may think all their own ways are right, but the LORD weighs the heart.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

The godless in heart harbor resentment; even when he fetters them, they do not cry for help.

You said in your heart,  “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God …”

Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer.

The pride of your heart has deceived you … you who say to yourself, “Who can bring me down to the ground?”

One whose heart is corrupt does not prosper …  Before a downfall the heart is haughty …
