Deuteronomy 30:3-6

Context
30:3 the Lord your God will reverse your captivity and have pity on you. He will turn and gather you from all the peoples among whom he 1  has scattered you. 30:4 Even if your exiles are in the most distant land, 2  from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back. 30:5 Then he 3  will bring you to the land your ancestors 4  possessed and you also will possess it; he will do better for you and multiply you more than he did your ancestors. 30:6 The Lord your God will also cleanse 5  your heart and the hearts of your descendants 6  so that you may love him 7  with all your mind and being and so that you may live.
