24For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
When God says He will give a new heart to the House of Israel (regeneration) He is basically saying that He will give them a new will.

The Hebrew word for heart is "לֵ֣ב" or "lev" which means, "inner man, mind, will, heart" (biblelexicon.org).

This is the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. He gives you a new will.
Then His Spirit will dwell within us.

So where is libertarian freewill in this?
