I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “bethink”.

1 Kings 8:47 Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land
whither they were carried captives, and repent,
and make supplication unto thee in the land of them
that carried them captives, saying,
We have sinned,
and have done perversely,
we have committed wickedness;

1Ki 8:48 And  so return unto thee with all their heart,
and with all their soul,
in the land of their enemies,
which led them away captive,
and pray unto thee toward their land,
which thou gavest unto their fathers,
the city which thou hast chosen,
and the house which I have built for thy name:

1Ki 8:49 Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication
in heaven thy dwelling place,
and maintain their cause,

1Ki 8:50 And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee,
and all their transgressions
wherein they have transgressed against thee,
and give them compassion before them
who carried them captive,
that they may have compassion on them:

1Ki 8:51 For they  be thy people,
and thine inheritance,
which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt,
from the midst of the furnace of iron:

1Ki 8:52 That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant,
and unto the supplication of thy people Israel,
to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee.

2 Chronicles 6:37 Yet if they bethink themselves in the land
whither they are carried captive, and turn
and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying,
We have sinned,
we have done amiss,
and have dealt wickedly;

2Ch 6:38 If they return to thee with all their heart
and with all their soul in the land of their captivity,
whither they have carried them captives,
and pray toward their land,
which thou gavest unto their fathers,
and toward the city which thou hast chosen,
and toward the house which I have built for thy name:

2Ch 6:39 Then hear thou from the heavens,
even from thy dwelling place,
their prayer and their supplications,
and maintain their cause,
and forgive thy people
which have sinned against thee.
