Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you — I whom you have delivered.
Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.
Save me, LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.
You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
This is what the LORD says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, 'We will not walk in it.'
But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you: to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, to keep his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul."
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.
"Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.
Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' [^3]
