Isaiah 48:16-18 Living Bible (TLB)
16 Come closer and listen. I have always told you plainly what would happen, so that you could clearly understand. And now the Lord God and his Spirit have sent me (with this message):
17 The Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, says: I am the Lord your God, who punishes you for your own good and leads you along the paths that you should follow.
18 Oh, that you had listened to my laws! Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river, and great waves of righteousness.
