Bible Verse:
“…for the Lord searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you for ever. ” (1 Chronicles 28:9)
To search one’s heart or soul is to seek out one’s innermost desires.
Origin and Application:
This is what God said to King David when He chose David’s son, Solomon, to build a temple in honour of God. David obeyed the Lord’s command and gave his son Solomon the plans for the temple. To search one’s heart or soul is to seek out one’s innermost desires. “Soul-searching”, derived from this idiom, is also used.
After much soul-searching, Tom said sorry to his wife for neglecting her feelings.
