6 "Turn to him with all your heart and soul, live in loyal obedience to him. Then he will turn to you to help you and will no longer hide himself. Remember what God has done for you, and give thanks with all your heart. Praise the righteous Lord; honor the eternal King. "Although I live in exile in a foreign land, I will give thanks to the Lord and will speak of his great strength to a nation of sinners. "Turn away from your sins, and do what pleases God! Perhaps he will be gracious and show you his mercy.'
