and you 3return to the LORD your God and bobey Him 4with all your heart and soul according to all that I command you today, you and your sons,
then the LORD your God will 5restorecyou from captivity, and havecompassion on you, and 6will gather you again from all the peopleswhere the LORD your God has 7scattered you.
