New International Version
17 This is what the Lord says—
your Redeemer,(A) the Holy One(B) of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
who teaches(C) you what is best for you,
who directs(D) you in the way(E) you should go.
18 If only you had paid attention(F) to my commands,
your peace(G) would have been like a river,(H)
your well-being(I) like the waves of the sea.
