"Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."
Genesis 2:7, TNIV

"Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins (kidneys) and my heart."
Psalm 26:2, Ye olde King James Version

REINS defn. - derived from Latin "renes" through Old French "reins"... According to Hebrew psychology the reins are the seat of the deepest emotions and affections of man, which God alone can fully know. The Greek word nephros (which is etymologically allied to the Middle English nere, Get. Niere; see Skeat, ibid, 231, under the word "Kidney") is found in 1 Macc 2:24; Rev 2:23. See KIDNEYS.
H. L. E. Luering, International Bible Dictionary

"What really happens is 1,700 L are seen by the kidney, 180 L get through the filter inside the Nephron, then the good stuff that is needed gets taken out and you are left with anywhere from 0.5 -2.0 L per day of waste. The amazing thing is that the total length of a single nephron is about 3 cm (all that work and intelligence happens in 3 cm!). The total length of all the nephrons together is 60 Km, or 600 CFL football fields."
Dr. Garth Mortis, Nephrologist

"...but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans
that words cannot express..."
Romans 8:26, TNIV

"By this everyone will know that you are my disciples,
if you love one another.
John 13:35, TNIV

"Our best dialysis can only replace 10% of the kidney's function"
Dr. Garth Mortis, Nephrologist
