The Passion Translation
7 “For just a brief moment I deserted you,
but with tender feelings of love
I will gather you back to me.
8 In a surge of anger, for just the briefest moment,
I hid my face from you,
but with everlasting kindness,
I will show you my cherishing love,”
says Yahweh, your Kinsman-Redeemer.
9 “To me, this is like the time when I vowed
that the waters of Noah’s flood
would never again cover the earth.
Now I vow to you that I will neither be angry with you
nor rebuke you.
