For they that are after
the flesh do mind the things of
the flesh; but they that are after
the Spirit the things of the
Spirit. For to be carnally
minded is death; but to be
spiritually minded is life and
peace. Because the carnal mind
is enmity against God: for it is
not subject to the law of God,
neither indeed can be. (Romans 8:5-7)
And he that searcheth
the hearts knoweth what is the
mind of the Spirit, because he
maketh intercession for the saints
according to the will of God. (Romans 8:27)

as well as you; I am not inferior

things as these? (Job 12:3)

the inward parts? or who hath
given understanding to the heart?

the wicked come to an end; but

righteous God trieth the hearts
and reins. (Psalm 7:9)

Melchizedek. (Psalm 110:4)

For all his days are
sorrows, and his travail grief;
yea, his heart taketh not rest in
the night. This is also vanity.
I applied mine heart to
know, and to search, and to seek
out wisdom, and the reason of
things, and to know the wickedness
of folly, even of foolishness and
madness: (Ecclesiastes 7:25)
All this have I seen,
and applied my heart unto every
work that is done under the sun:
there is a time wherein one man
ruleth over another to his own
hurt. (Ecclesiastes 8:9)
When I applied mine
heart to know wisdom, and to see
the business that is done upon the
earth: (for also there is that
neither day nor night seeth sleep
with his eyes:) (Ecclesiastes 8:16)

whose mind is steadfast, because
he trusts in you. (Isaiah 26:3), NIV

mind is busy with evil: He
practices ungodliness and spreads

hungry he leaves empty and from
the thirsty he withholds water. (Isaiah 32:6), NIV

Spirit of the LORD, or being his
counseller hath taught him? (Isaiah 40:13)

new heavens and a new earth: and
the former shall not be
remembered, nor come into mind. (Isaiah 65:17)

the one, and love the other; or

despise the other. Ye cannot serve
God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24)

Meaning of Mind
Mind refers to the aspects of intellect and consciousness manifested as combinations of thought, perception, memory, emotion, will and imagination, including all of the brain's conscious and unconscious cognitive processes. "Mind" is often used to refer especially to the thought processes of reason. Subjectively, mind manifests itself as a stream of consciousness.
There are many theories of the mind and its function. The earliest recorded works on the mind are by Zarathushtra, the Buddha, Plato, Aristotle, Adi Shankara and other ancient Greek, Indian and Islamic philosophers. Pre-scientific theories, based in theology, concentrated on the relationship between the mind and the soul, the supernatural, divine or god-given essence of the person. Modern theories, based on scientific understanding of the brain, theorize that the mind is a product of the brain and has both conscious and unconscious aspects.
The question of which attributes make up the mind is also much debated. Some argue that only the "higher" intellectual functions constitute mind: particularly reason and memory. In this view the emotions - love, hate, fear, joy - are more "primitive" or subjective in nature and should be seen as different from the mind. Others argue that the rational and the emotional sides of the human person cannot be separated, that they are of the same nature and origin, and that they should all be considered as part of the individual mind.
In popular usage mind is frequently synonymous with thought. It is that private conversation with ourselves that we carry on "inside our heads." Thus we "make up our minds," "change our minds" or are "of two minds" about something. One of the key attributes of the mind in this sense is that it is a private sphere to which no one but the owner has access. No-one else can "know our mind." They can only interpret what we consciously or unconsciously communicate.9
