The Deceitful Heart

The heart is more deceitful than anything else,
and incurable—who can understand it?

Jeremiah 17:9-10The Message (MSG)

9-10 “The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful,
    a puzzle that no one can figure out.
But I, God, search the heart
    and examine the mind.
I get to the heart of the human.
    I get to the root of things.
I treat them as they really are,
    not as they pretend to be.”

The Message (MSG)
