Categorisation of Kardia (cont.)

Examples of the major and minor categories in Table 1 are given in the following.

The Emotional Heart: My heart rejoiced, let not your heart be troubled; they were cut to the heart and their hearts were burning within them

The Internally Active Heart: Your heart is where your treasure is; the evil servant says within his heart; why did you purpose in your heart this thing; they were pricked in heart; why do you reason these things in your heart; perhaps the thoughts of your hearts may be forgiven you; whoever shall not doubt in his heart; believing in the heart; those that believed were of one heart and soul; O foolish and slow of heart to believe

Knowing the Heart: God who tries our hearts; you Lord who knows the hearts of all; the secrets of the heart become manifest

The Heart able to Contain or Receive: the word is in your mouth and in your heart; his mother kept all these things in her heart; all who heard lay the matter in their hearts

The Unrighteous Heart: on account of the hardness of their heart; those things which come out of the mouth come out of the heart and they defile a person; the bitterness and contention in your hearts; out of the heart of men … comes adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetous desires

The Righteous Heart: blessed are the pure in heart; we should approach with a true heart; you are our epistle having been inscribed on our hearts; you obeyed out of the heart; by faith having purified their hearts

The Heart Set Towards God: Love the Lord your God with all your heart

The Wise/Understanding/knowing Heart: this people’s heart has waxed fat; a veil lies upon their heart, their foolish heart was darkened; God has shone in our hearts, until the morning star should arise in your hearts

The Turning Heart: turning back their hearts to Egypt; after your hardness and unrepentant heart

The Heart that can be Influenced: the wicked one snatches away what was sown in the heart; God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts; A letter from Christ written … on tablets of fleshy hearts; that he might comfort your hearts; by praise deceive the hearts; you have nourished your hearts in the day of slaughter; she of whom the Lord opened the heart

The Heart of Noble Character: be patient, establish your hearts; exhorted them all with purpose of heart to abide by the Lord; obey your masters in singleness of heart

The Heart that Issues in Speech: out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks; singing and praising with your heart to God

The Heart that is the Inner Being: singing with grace in your heart to the Lord; sanctify the Lord God in your hearts
