How Precious Is Your Steadfast Love

To the choirmaster. Of David, the xservant of the Lord.

36  Transgression speaks to the wicked

deep in his heart;1

ythere is no fear of God

before his eyes.


35 rThe good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil.


18 But awhat comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. 19 For out of the heart come bevil thoughts, cmurder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, dslander. 20 eThese are what defile a person. But fto eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone.


45 tThe good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces uevil, vfor out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.


23  Keep your heart with all vigilance,

for ofrom it flow pthe springs of life.
