return unto YHWH, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our Elohim, for He will
abundantly pardon.

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isa 55:10 For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not there, but
waters * the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and
bread to the eater:
Isa 55:11 So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void,
but it shall accomplish * that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent
Isa 55:12 For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills
shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

the myrtle tree: and it shall be to YHWH for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be

dry tree.

things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
Isa 56:5 Even unto them will I give in my house and within my walls a place and a name better
than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
Isa 56:6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YHWH, to serve Him, and to love
* the name of YHWH, to be His servants, every one that keeps the sabbath from polluting it,
and takes hold of my covenant;

prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar; for my
house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.
