“11 For I know the thoughts, that I have thought towards you, saith the ‘Lord’ [YHWH: Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym], even the thoughts of peace, and not of trouble, to give you an end, and your hope.
12 Then shall you cry unto ‘me’ [ha-yad: the-means, the-direction, etc..], and ye shall go and ‘pray’ [siyach: ponder, meditate, etc..] unto ‘me’ [ha-yad: the-means, the-direction, etc..], and I will ‘hear’ [qashab: give head, regard, etc..] you, 13 And ye shall seek ‘me’ [the-direction, etc..], and find ‘me’ [the-direction], because ye shall seek ‘me’ [the-direction] with all [a]your heart.”

They connect it to [eg.] Exodus 3:14 – [ETC..] where the divinity [‘Elohiym of Israel, YHWH] who spoke with Moses responds to a question about his name by declaring: אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh asher ehyeh),“I am that I am” or “I will be what I will be”(in Biblical Hebrew the form of the verb here is not associated with any particular English tense).“
