    I hid(F) my face from you for a moment,
but with everlasting kindness(G)
    I will have compassion(H) on you,”
    says the Lord your Redeemer.(I)

“To me this is like the days of Noah,
    when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.(J)
So now I have sworn(K) not to be angry(L) with you,
    never to rebuke(M) you again.
