II Chronicles 7:14
See also: Jeremiah 31:34, I John 1:9
God will forgive only if they “humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways.” Joshua is speaking of those who “forsake the LORD” (Joshua 24:20).
Furthermore, although God forgives sin when we repent, this does not mean that we do not experience God’s punishment for those sins. Sin bears consequences even after God has forgiven us, and Joshua mentions this in verse 20.
