“26 ‘I’ (Ha-Ga’al: The-Deliverer, The-Redeemer, etc..) will give you a new heart and put a new ‘spirit’ (ruwach: expression, mind, etc..) within you; ‘I’ (the-Deliverer) will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
Amein…. And to think there are those who prefer a heart of stone! How sad.
