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.”

20 Leave Babylon,
    flee(I) from the Babylonians!
Announce this with shouts of joy(J)
    and proclaim it.
Send it out to the ends of the earth;(K)
    say, “The Lord has redeemed(L) his servant Jacob.”
