Complete Jewish Bible
18 If only you would heed my mitzvot!
Then your peace would flow on like a river,
and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
19 Your descendants would be numerous as the sand,
your offspring countless as its grains.
Their name would never be cut off
or destroyed from my presence.”
20 Get out of Bavel! Flee the Kasdim!
With shouts of joy announce it, proclaim it!
Send the news out to the ends of the earth!
Say, “Adonai has redeemed his servant Ya‘akov.”
New International Version
18 If only you had paid attention(A) to my commands,
your peace(B) would have been like a river,(C)
your well-being(D) like the waves of the sea.
19 Your descendants(E) would have been like the sand,(F)
your children like its numberless grains;(G)
their name would never be blotted out(H)
nor destroyed from before me.”
