Yet when you seek the Lord, your God, from there,
you shall indeed find him if you search after him with all your heart and soul.
In your distress, when all these things shall have come upon you,
you shall finally return to the Lord, your God, and listen to his voice.
Since the Lord, your God, is a merciful God,
he will not abandon or destroy you,
nor forget the covenant with your ancestors that he swore to them.
