38 Then what prayer, and supplication soever shall be made of any man or of all thy people Israel, when everyone shall know the plague in his own [a]heart, and stretch forth his hands in this house,

39 Hear thou then in heaven, in thy dwelling place, and be merciful, and do, and give every man according to all his ways, as thou knowest his heart, (for thou only knowest the hearts of all the children of men)

40 That they may fear thee as long as they live in the land, which thou gavest unto our fathers.
