39 listen in heaven, the place of your enthronement; forgive and take action. Render to each and all according to their ways, you who know every heart; for it is you alone who know the heart of every human being.
15 The One who fashioned together their hearts is the One who knows all their works.
11 The Lord knows the plans of man; they are like a fleeting breath.(A)
18 He searches out the abyss and penetrates the heart; their secrets he understands.For the Most High possesses all knowledge, and sees from of old the things that are to come.
10 I, the Lord, explore the mind and test the heart,Giving to all according to their ways, according to the fruit of their deeds.(A)
12 Lord of hosts, you test the just, you see mind and heart,Let me see the vengeance you take on them, for to you I have entrusted my cause.(A)
