18 “If only you had (A)paid attention to My commandments!
Then your [a](B)well-being would have been like a river,
And your (C)righteousness like the waves of the sea.
19 “Your [b](D)descendants would have been like the sand,
And [c]your offspring like its grains;
(E)Their name would never be cut off or destroyed from My presence.”

20 (F)Go forth from Babylon! Flee from the Chaldeans!
Declare with the sound of (G)joyful shouting, proclaim this,
(H)Send it out to the end of the earth;
Say, “(I)The Lord has redeemed His servant Jacob.”
