|The heart is deceitful above all things|
and beyond cure.

|The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?|
God knows our hearts. The "heart" of a person includes one's thoughts, feelings, and what makes one "tick".
Our hearts are notoriously sinful. Scripture clearly indicates that this sinful nature is present within us before we are even born! (Psalm 51:5) Since we are sinful from birth there is only one solution; a new birth is required!
