13 (A)As a father pities his children,So the Lord pities those who fear Him.
13 As a father has compassion(A) on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
17 “They(A) shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,“On the day that I make them My (B)jewels.[a]And (C)I will spare themAs a man spares his own son who serves him.”
17 “On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty, “they will be my(A) treasured possession.(B) I will spare(C) them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son(D) who serves him.
