If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.
For I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of my name.”

You yourselves know that these hands of mine
I will rescue
For we know that the law is spiritual – but I am unspiritual, sold into slavery to sin.

I will harden
So I have said to you: You yourselves will possess their land and I myself will give it to you for a possession, a land flowing with milk and honey. I am the Lord your God who has set you apart from the other peoples.
