6:21 You shall listen therefore to the humble prayers of Your servant, and of Your people Israel, that they shall pray toward this place: You shall hear from Your dwelling place, even from Heaven; and when you hear and forgive.
6:22 If a man shall sin against his neighbor, and he shall lift up an oath on him to make him swear, and the oath shall come and swear before Your altar in this house;
6:23 Then You shall hear  from Heaven, and act, and judge Your servants, by repay the wicked, by bringing his way on his own head; and to justifying the righteous, by giving to him according to his righteousness.

6:33 Then hear you from Heaven, even from your dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calls to You; so that all people of the earth may know your name, and so as to fear You, as does Your people Israel, and to know that Your name is called on in this house which I have built.
6:34 When Your people go out to war against their enemies in the way that You shall send them, and they pray to You toward this city which You have chosen, and the house which I have built for Your name;
6:35 Then You shall hear  from the heavens their prayer and their supplication, and shall maintain their cause.
6:36 If they sin against You, (for there is not a man who doesn’t sin,) and you shall be angry with them, and give them up before their enemies, and their captors carry them away captives to a land far off or near;
6:37 and they shall return to their heart to their heart in the land from which they are taken captive, and shall turn back and humbly pray to You in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have acted perversely and have done wickedly;
6:38 If they shall turn back to you with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, where they have been taken captive, and pray toward their land, which You gave to their fathers, and toward the city which You have chosen, and toward the house which I have built for Your name:
6:39 Then You shall hear from the Heaven, from Your dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive Your people which have sinned against You.
