1 (To the chief Musician upon Muthlabben, A Psalm of David.) I will praise thee, O Yahweh, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

The heart is the birthplace of Divine life in human flesh, through the channel of the mind illumined by the glorious gospel of Christ.

"Ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine delivered unto you,"

said Paul to the Romans (6: 17).

This form of speech "from the heart'' leads the thought further than an intellectual

comprehension. Although the word "heart" is variously rendered in the Scriptures, it conveys, as in so many other places, the idea of affection, rising from a proper sense of the Divine Truth understood and believed. The Psalmist says,

"I will praise thee with my whole heart",

that is, his full affection and appreciation would be poured out unto God in praise to His name.
