Christian Standard Bible
7 “I deserted you for a brief moment,(A)
but I will take you back with abundant compassion.
8 In a surge of anger
I hid my face(B) from you for a moment,
but I will have compassion on you
with everlasting love,”(C)
says the Lord your Redeemer.
9 “For this is like the days[a] of Noah to me:
when I swore that the water of Noah
would never flood the earth again,(D)
so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you
or rebuke you.(E)
