18 In that day I will make a covenant for them
    with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky
    and the creatures that move along the ground.(A)
Bow and sword and battle
    I will abolish(B) from the land,
    so that all may lie down in safety.(C)
19 I will betroth(D) you to me forever;
    I will betroth you in[a] righteousness and justice,(E)
    in[b] love and compassion.(F)
20 I will betroth you in[c] faithfulness,
    and you will acknowledge(G) the Lord.(H)
