I hid my face from you for a moment in a burst of anger,
    but I will have compassion on you with everlasting kindness,”
        says Yahweh your Go’el.
“To me this is like Noah’s floodwaters, when I swore an oath
    that Noah’s floodwaters would never cover the earth again.
    So now I swear an oath not to be angry with you or punish you.
10 The mountains may move, and the hills may shake,
    but my kindness will never depart from you.
        My promise[a] of peace will never change,”
            says Yahweh, who has compassion on you.
