For the Eternal has called you to come back home,
    like a young wife, once deserted and deeply injured.
Now God is pulling you close again. Like a spouse forgives,
    He will take you back and be reconciled.
The Eternal, your Redeemer, says this:

Eternal One: Yes, I was angry for a moment, and I rejected you,
        but My love endures, and I want you back.
    For that moment, when I was so mad,
        I made it impossible for you to see Me, to find Me,
    But with great tenderness, I will take you back in love.

The Lord will call you back(A)
    as if you were a wife deserted(B) and distressed in spirit—
a wife who married young,(C)
    only to be rejected,” says your God.
“For a brief moment(D) I abandoned(E) you,
    but with deep compassion(F) I will bring you back.(G)
In a surge of anger(H)
    I hid(I) my face from you for a moment,
but with everlasting kindness(J)
    I will have compassion(K) on you,”
    says the Lord your Redeemer.(L)
