Yes, God would bring judgment against sin, but He would also be working to restore His people and give them new hearts of faith.

BibleGateway: Ezekiel 11:11-21

ESV Text: Ezekiel 11:11-21



KJV Text:

The section starts at about 1:25 and ends at about 3:28

11 This city shall not be your caldron, neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst thereof; but I will judge you in the border of Israel: 12 And ye shall know that I am the LORD: for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you. 13 And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou make a full end of the remnant of Israel?

     14 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 15 Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from the LORD: unto us is this land given in possession. 16 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come. 17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. 18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence. 19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: 20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God. 21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.(KJV)

1. Lord Jesus, think on me 
And purge away my sin; 
From earth-born passions set me free 
And make me pure within. 

2. Lord Jesus, think on me 
With many a care opprest; 
Let me Thy loving servant be 
And taste Thy promised rest.

Amid the battle’s strife; 
In all my pain and misery 
Be Thou my Health and Life. 

4. Lord Jesus, think on me 
Nor let me go astray; 
Through darkness and perplexity

5. Lord Jesus, think on me 
When floods the tempest high; 
When on doth rush the enemy, 
O Savior, be Thou nigh! 

6. Lord Jesus, think on me 
That, when the flood is past, 
I may the eternal brightness see 
And share Thy joy at last. 

7. Lord Jesus, think on me 
That I may sing above 
To Father, Spirit, and to Thee 
The strains of praise and love.
