Proverbs 20:27

"The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the innermost
parts of his being" (Proverbs 20:27 NASB). God knows what is in the darkest
corners of your conscience. This proverb is difficult to understand and
interpret. Literally, the first line is "lamp of the Lord spirit of man"
with no verb at all. Most translations supply the verb "is" but it is also
likely the verb "searching" in the second line applies to the whole making
it say something like: "The lamp of the Lord searches the spirit of man,
searches all the innermost parts of his being." There is no where we can go
and no way to hide anything from divine scrutiny (cf. Ecclesiastes 12:14).
It could also be the proverb is referring to being created in the image of
God. God created us in His image and gave us breath. We have corrupted that
image, but He has provided the tool to retrain our consciences and live
pleasing in His sight--The Word of God. Whichever meaning the proverb has,
we have to recognize there is a God in this world and live accordingly.
