"If you set your heart aright, stretch out your hands toward him.
Young's Literal Translation
If thou -- thou hast prepared thy heart, And hast spread out unto Him thy hands,
Job 11:13 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If thou prepare thine heart - Make use of the powers which God has given thee, and be determined to seek him with all thy soul.
And stretch out thine hands toward him - Making fervent prayer and supplication, putting away iniquity out of thy hand, and not permitting wickedness to dwell in thy tabernacle; then thou shalt lift up thy face without a blush, thou wilt become established, and have nothing to fear, Job 11:14, Job 11:15.
לאדם מערכי לב leadam maarchey leb.
To man are the preparations of the heart:
ומהוה מענה לשון umeyehovah maaneh lashon.
But from Jehovah is the answer to the tongue.

"And we all do Fade as a Leaf, and Our Iniquities, Like the Wind, have Taken us Away. "
1 Samuel 7:3
So Samuel said to all the Israelites, "If you are returning to the LORD with all your hearts, then rid yourselves of the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths and commit yourselves to the LORD and serve him only, and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines."
"Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.
Why has your heart carried you away, and why do your eyes flash,
If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored: If you remove wickedness far from your tent
You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows.
When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and I would not be comforted.
They would not be like their ancestors-- a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.
