English Standard Version
6 (A)For the Lord has called you
like a wife deserted and grieved in spirit,
like a wife of youth when she is cast off,
says your God.
7 (B)For a brief moment I deserted you,
but with great compassion I will gather you.
8 (C)In overflowing anger for a moment
I hid my face from you,
(D)but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,”
says the Lord, your Redeemer.
