A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will take out of your flesh the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to observe my ordinances. You shall dwell in the land which I gave to your fathers; and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.
Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you have turned their hearts back.
I Kings 18:37
I have swept away your transgressions like a cloud, and your sins like mist; return to me, for I have redeemed you.
Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.
It was fitting to make merry and be glad, for this your brother was dead, and is alive; he was lost, and is found.
And Jesus said to him [Zacchaeus], “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost.”
