Modern English Version
6 For the Lord has called you
as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit,
and a wife of youth
when you were refused, says your God.
7 For a small moment I have forsaken you,
but with great mercies I will gather you.
8 In a little wrath
I hid My face from you for a moment;
but with everlasting kindness
I will have mercy on you,
says the Lord your Redeemer.

but with deep compassion(F) I will bring you back.(G)
8 In a surge of anger(H)
I hid(I) my face from you for a moment,
