Pure in Heart.

"'Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.'"  Matthew 5:8 (NRSV)

Jesus said that the world does not know God.

"'Isaiah prophesied rightly about you when he said, "This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, in vain do they worship me."'"  Matthew 15:8,9a (NRSV)

Only the pure in heart will see God.

For "the Lord looks on the heart."  1 Samuel 16:7d (NRSV)
