You were like a woman whose husband left her.
    And you were very sad.
You were like a wife who married young
    and then her husband left her.
But the Lord called you to be his,”
    says your God.
God says, “I left you, but only for a short time.
    But with great kindness I will bring you back again.
I became very angry
    and hid from you for a short time.
But I will show you mercy with kindness forever,”
    says the Lord your close relative who saves you.
