In this article the idea of repentance and conversion as preached by the prophets is discussed within the framework of the covenant. Repentance and conversion are located within the covenant by indicating that it is the logical step after the breaking of the covenant by the people (Deut. 29 and 30). The way in which repentance and conversion are understood in the Prophets is then discussed in more detail, and the following aspects are argued: (i) the call to conversion is directed primarily towards Israel; (ii) conversion implies a turning away from sin and a turning back towards God. Finally it is indicated that the prophets understood conversion as having been initiated by God, although man also had a responsibility in this process.
