|Psalms 40:8 |
Display Chapter and Footnotes
8 I delight to do your will, O my God; yes, your law is within my heart."1
1 Your law is written in my heart. God's commands, which we hear, as we listen, if we believe them, are written in our hearts. They then guide us in our thoughts, words, and deeds. Until he has written his complete law in our hearts, we have not received salvation. This is to receive a new heart, a circumcised heart, a purified heart. As God said: "I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." Jer 31:33.
