Original text and translations
12 [Therefore also] Now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart,
and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God:
for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
