New International Reader's Version
4 “If you, Israel, will return,” announces the Lord.
“then return to me,”
“Put the statues of your gods out of my sight.
I hate them.
Stop going astray.
2 Make all your promises in my name.
When you promise say, ‘You can be sure that the Lord is alive.’
Be truthful, fair and honest when you make these promises.
Then the nations will ask for blessings from me.
And they will boast about me.”
