Biblical Limericks: Idiomatically

Rendered idiomatically
the “heart” comes from the Hebrew “kidney,”
which causes me to think

he’s had too much to drink 
and the psalmist must get up to pee.

Psalm 16: 7

“I bless Yahweh who is my counselor,
even at night my heart (literally “kidney”) instructs me.” 

(New Jerusalem Bible)
