I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.
O Lord, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies! . . . And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face? Israel hath sinned, . . . for they have even taken of the accursed thing, . . . and they have put [it] even among their own stuff.
Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you, that he will not hear.
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear [me].
Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, [then] have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
