|Ezekiel 18:31-32,36:26 |
31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, by which you have transgressed; and get a new heart, a new mind, and a new spirit. For why will you die1, O house of Israel?
32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him who dies," says the Lord GOD. "Therefore turn [from your evil ways] and live!"
26 I will also give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.1 [The stony heart symbolizes the stubborn, evil heart in all men; the fleshly heart symbolizes the heart that is submissive and obedient to God.]
