“Be converted, and do penance for all your iniquities: and iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions… and make to yourselves a new heart, and a new spirit… For I desire not the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God, return ye, and live.” (Ezechiel xviii, 30-32)
