“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
“Create (bara: shape, form, fashion) in me a clean (tahor: pure) heart (leb: mind, understanding), O God, and renew (chadash: repair, make a new) a steadfast (kuwn: right, fixed, established) spirit (ruwach: wind, breath, mind) within me (qereb: seat or faculty of thought and emotion).”
Form within me a clean and pure heart O God. Make new a right spirit deep in the innermost part of me.
Clean and renewed – what a great condition to be in. Today may our prayer be simple, LORD cleanse us, renew us. You are the Creator of new life.
