But Yahweh of Armies, who judges righteously,
who tests the kidneys and the heart,
I will see your vengeance on them,
for to you have I revealed my cause. Bible

“kidneys.” The Word of God points to the fact that our kidneys, bowels, and belly (or womb) are part of our mental/emotional life, not “just physical organs.” Our “gut,” including our intestines, bowels, kidneys and stomach contain as many nerve cells as our brain, and studies are now showing that our “gut” contributes significantly to our emotional life and health. [For more on the kidneys and our emotional life, see commentary on Rev. 2:23, “kidneys”]. Jeremiah 11:20 is quite similar to Psalms 7:9 and 26:2, that it is a righteous God who tests our kidneys and heart.
