47 and when they come to their senses[a]
in the land where they were deported
and repent and petition You in their captors’ land:
“We have sinned and done wrong;
we have been wicked,”(A)
48 and when they return to You with their whole mind and heart
in the land of their enemies who took them captive,(B)
and when they pray to You in the direction of their land
that You gave their ancestors,
the city You have chosen,(C)
and the temple I have built for Your name,
49 may You hear in heaven, Your dwelling place,
their prayer and petition and uphold their cause.
