41 and that I also have walked contrary to them and have brought them into the land of their enemies;

if their (B)uncircumcised hearts are (C)humbled, and they (D)accept their guilt—

42 then I will (E)remember My covenant with Jacob, and My covenant with Isaac and My covenant with Abraham I will remember;

I will (F)remember the land.

43 (G)The land also shall be left empty by them, and will enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them;

they will accept their guilt, because they (H)despised My judgments and because their soul abhorred My statutes.

44 Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, (I)I will not cast them away, nor shall I abhor them, to utterly destroy them and break My covenant with them;

for I am the Lord their God.

I am the Lord.’ ”
