D.A (NLT)

A vital bodily organ. The term is used in Scripture of the inner life of God or a person. The entire inner person, though fallen, may be changed by the Holy Spirit, in which case it should show evidence of renewal. HEART.
5 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My jealous anger burns against these nations, especially Edom, because they have shown utter contempt for me by gleefully taking my land for themselves as plunder. new Spirit
Chapter 36 is set in antithesis to chapter 35. When God intervenes on Israel’s behalf, the “mountains” of Israel’s enemies will be judged (35:1–3, 8) but the “mountains of Israel” (cf. 35:12) will be blessed (36:1). In verses 1–7 Edom is again pictured as representing all nations who seek Israel’s harm (cf. vv. 5, 7). The first section of the prophecy (vv. 1–15) uses the “because/therefore” format to compare the judgment on the nations with Israel’s restoration. The second section of the prophecy (vv. 16–38) moves from the mountains of Israel to the people of Israel who will be the personal recipients of God’s blessing.

It was not enough to bring Israel back to the land; they would also become a new, transformed Israel. God would sprinkle them with clean water to cleanse them from all of the impurities that had defiled the land. Such sprinkling with water was a routine part of Jewish purification ceremonies (see Num 19); it symbolized a fresh start, with their old sins washed away

Who name was holy?
Why did God have to take out the stubborn heart?

From a biblical perspective, the heart was the seat of the mind and will, not just emotion. Ezekiel seems to use heart and spirit in tandem to refer to a person’s whole being (compare 18:31)

Ezekiel 11:19–20 NLT
And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart, so they will obey my decrees and regulations. Then they will truly be my people, and I will be their God.
The gift of the “new heart” signifies the new birth, which is regeneration by the Holy Spirit

The outer purification will be no use without the inner disposition to live rightly before God (36:27

The spirit of rebellion would be replaced with a spirit of obedience.

The spirit of rebellion would be replaced with a spirit of obedience. NLT
The heart and spirit are the sources of the thoughts and will that underlie action.
V.27 What was figuratively described in v. 25 is explained as literal in vv. 26, 27. The gift of the “new heart” signifies the new birth, which is regeneration by the Holy Spirit (cf. 11:18–20). The “heart” stands for the whole nature. The “spirit” indicates the governing power of the mind which directs thought and conduct. A “heart of stone” is stubborn and self-willed. A “heart of flesh” is pliable and responsive. The evil inclination is removed and a new nature replaces it. This is New Covenant character as in
Holman Bible Handbook God Cleanses His People (36:16–38)

Israel had polluted the land with their sinful deeds and had brought dishonor to God’s name. When Israel went into exile, the nations made wrong assumptions about the character of God. To vindicate Himself and restore His reputation among the nations, the Lord would restore the exiles to the land. He would cleanse their sins, create in them a desire for loyalty, and renew His agricultural blessings. At that time both the nations and Israel would recognize His sovereignty.

Jeremiah 31:31–34 NLT
“The day is coming,” says the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and Judah. This covenant will not be like the one I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and brought them out of the land of Egypt. They broke that covenant, though I loved them as a husband loves his wife,” says the Lord. “But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,” says the Lord. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. And they will not need to teach their neighbors, nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, ‘You should know the Lord.’ For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already,” says the Lord. “And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.”

and the moon and stars to light the night,
and who stirs the sea into roaring waves.
