GOD’S WORD Translation
6 “The Lord has called you as if you were
a wife who was abandoned and in grief,
a wife who married young and was rejected,” says your God.
7 “I abandoned you for one brief moment,
but I will bring you back with unlimited compassion.
8 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 the Lord your defender.
