25 (A)Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you (B)from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a (C)new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My (D)Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. 28 (E)Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; (F)you shall be My people, and I will be your God. 29 I will (G)deliver you from all your uncleannesses.

  1. Ezekiel 36:31 despise

(A)Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He [a]takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear (B)more fruit. (C)You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. (D)Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much (E)fruit; for without Me you can do (F)nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, (G)he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words (H)abide in you, (I)you[b] will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

Fruitful Growth in the Faith

But also for this very reason, (E)giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue (F)knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control [b]perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and (G)to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither [c]barren (H)nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is (I)shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
