9 So I said, "I will not make mention of him [the Lord], nor speak any more in his name." But his word was in my heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with withholding; I could not remain silent.
29 "Is not my word like a fire?" says the Lord; "and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?3 [His Word is Christ, the Word of God, the power of God. Hearing him speaking to you in your heart and then obeying the word of the Lord, results in the burning of the sin within you and a hammering down of that sinful nature.]
