42 I will remember[a] my covenant with Jacob; and I will remember also my covenant with Isaac and also my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land. 43 And the land shall be deserted by them, and it shall enjoy its Sabbaths in its being desolate from them, and they themselves[b] must pay for their guilt, simply because[c] they rejected my regulations, and their inner self[d] abhorred my statutes. 44 And in spite of[e] this, when they are[f] in the land of their enemies I will not reject them, and I will not abhor them to destroy them, to break my covenant with them, because I am Yahweh their God.
