“I will live with them
    and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.”[a](D)

17 Therefore,

“Come out from them(E)
    and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
    and I will receive you.”[b](F)

18 And,

“I will be a Father to you,
    and you will be my sons and daughters,(G)
says the Lord Almighty.”[c](H)
