While he may be found!
Call upon him
While he is near!
Let the wicked forsake their ways!
Let the unrighteous forsake their thoughts!
Let them return to Yahweh!
Thus he may have mercy on them.
Let them return to our God!
Thus he will abundantly pardon them.”
Second Isaiah wants people to seek and call upon the Lord, Yahweh, because he is still near and can be found. The wicked and the unrighteous should give up their evil ways and thoughts. They should return to the Lord because he is merciful and pardons abundantly.
