 18 A heart that imagines immoral plans, feet that are swift to run to evil,

 19 A false witness who speaks lies, and he who sows discord among brothers.3

Jeremiah 16:12,18:12

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 12 And you have done worse than your fathers; for behold, every one of you walks after the imagination of his evil heart and mind, and therefore you do not listen to and obey me.1 [Until cleansed by the Lord, every man's heart and mind is full of evil. From the Word of the Lord within: "As many as are at their savior's feet, there are six things I will put in order in front of your eyes:

  1. how evil proceeds out of the heart,
  2. and goes forth out of the mouth.
  3. how your heart longs for evil.
  4. how your feet are swift to run to evil.
  5. how your heart builds a strong tower as a bulwark of defense.
  6. how your heart is a mirror of the world; (the whole world lies in wickedness)."
We must persistently listen and obey completely to be cleansed.]
