15Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said , Get you far from the LORD: unto us is this landgiven in possession.16
Therefore say , Thus saith the LordGOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a littlesanctuary in the countries where they shall come .
Therefore say , Thus saith the LordGOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered , and I will give you the land of Israel.18
And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.
And I will give them oneheart, and I will put a newspiritwithin you; and I will take the stonyheart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:20
That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.21
But as for them whose heartwalketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads,saith the LordGOD.
