" 'But if they will confess1 their sins2 and the sins of their fathers3--their treachery against me and their hostility toward me,
which made me hostile4 toward them so that I sent them into the land of their enemies--then when their uncircumcised hearts5 are humbled6 and they pay7 for their sin,
I will remember my covenant with Jacob8 and my covenant with Isaac9 and my covenant with Abraham,10 and I will remember the land.
For the land will be deserted11 by them and will enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them. They will pay for their sins because they rejected12 my laws and abhorred my decrees.1344
Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies,14 I will not reject them or abhor15 them so as to destroy them completely,16 breaking my covenant17 with them. I am the LORD their God.
But for their sake I will remember18 the covenant with their ancestors whom I brought out of Egypt19 in the sight of the nations to be their God. I am the LORD.' "
