be-think' (heshibh 'el lebh, "to lay to heart," hence, "recall to mind"): Anglo-Saxon word used only in seventh petition of Solomon's prayer at the dedication of the Temple. If the people, carried into captivity, because of sin, should "take it to heart," then God (he prayed) would hear and forgive (1 Kings 8:47 2 Chronicles 6:37). A choice illustration of the mental and heart process in reflection, repentance and conversion.
