Reins

KJV term for kidneys, used both in a literal anatomical sense and in a figurative sense for the seat of the emotions. The substitutions made by the NRSV are illustrative of those of other modern translations: literal sense as “kidneys” (Job 16:13 ), “inward parts” (Psalm 139:13 ), and “loins” (Isaiah 11:5 ); figurative sense as “heart” (Job 19:27; Psalm 7:9; Psalm 16:7; Psalm 26:2; Psalm 73:21; Jeremiah 11:20 ) with the exception of Proverbs 23:16 (“soul”).
