I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “heart” from the ‘wise’.

to be exercised therewith.

Ecclesiastes 1:16 I communed with mine own heart, saying,
Lo, I am come to great estate,
and have gotten more wisdom than all they
that have been before me in Jerusalem:
yea, my heart had great experience
of wisdom and knowledge.

Ecclesiastes 1:17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom,
and to know madness and folly:
I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.

Ecclesiastes 2:1 I said in mine heart, Go to now,
I will prove thee with mirth,
therefore enjoy pleasure:
and, behold, this also is vanity.

Ecclesiastes 2:3 I sought in mine heart to give myself unto wine,
yet acquainting mine heart with wisdom;
and to lay hold on folly,
till I might see what was that good for the sons of men,
which they should do under the heaven all the days of their life.

Ecclesiastes 2:10 And whatsoever mine eyes desired
I kept not from them,
I withheld not my heart from any joy;
for my heart rejoiced in all my labour:
and this was my portion of all my labour.

Ecclesiastes 2:15 Then said I in my heart,
As it happeneth to the fool,
so it happeneth even to me;
and why was I then more wise?
Then I said in my heart,
that this also is vanity.

my heart to despair of all the labour
which I took under the sun.

and of the vexation of his heart,
wherein he hath laboured under the sun?

and his travail grief; yea,
his heart taketh not rest in the night.

whose heart is snares and nets,

shall feel no evil thing:
and a wise man’s heart discerneth
both time and judgment.

Ecclesiastes 8:9 All this have I seen,
and applied my heart unto every work
that is done under the sun:
there is a time wherein one man ruleth
over another to his own hurt.

Ecclesiastes 8:11 Because sentence against an evil work
is not executed speedily,
therefore the heart of the sons of men
is fully set in them to do evil.

and to see the business that is done upon the earth:
(for also there is that neither day
nor night seeth sleep with his eyes:)

Ecclesiastes 9:1 For all this I considered in my heart
even to declare all this, that the righteous,
and the wise,
and their works, are in the hand of God:
no man knoweth either love
or hatred by all that is before them.

Ecclesiastes 9:3 This is an evil among all things
that are done under the sun,
that there is one event unto all: yea,
also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil,
and madness is in their heart while they live,
and after that they go to the dead.

Ecclesiastes 9:7 Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy,
and drink thy wine with a merry heart;
for God now accepteth thy works.

Ecclesiastes 10:2 A wise man’s heart is at his right hand;
but a fool’s heart at his left.

Ecclesiastes 11:9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth;
and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth,
and walk in the ways of thine heart,
and in the sight of thine eyes:
but know thou, that for all these things
God will bring thee into judgment.

Ecclesiastes 11:10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart,
and put away evil from thy flesh:
for childhood and youth are vanity.

and behold king Solomon with the crown
wherewith his mother crowned him
in the day of his espousals,
and in the day of the gladness of his heart.

Song of Solomon 4:9 Thou hast ravished my heart,
my sister, my spouse;
thou hast ravished my heart
with one of thine eyes,
with one chain of thy neck.

Song of Solomon 5:2 I sleep, but my heart waketh:
it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying,
Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled:
for my head is filled with dew,
and my locks with the drops of the night.

Song of Solomon 8:6 Set me as a seal upon thine heart,
as a seal upon thine arm:
for love is strong as death;
jealousy is cruel as the grave:
the coals thereof are coals of fire,
which hath a most vehement flame.
