GOD’S WORD Translation
18 If only you had listened to my commands!
Your peace would be like a river that never runs dry.
Your righteousness would be like waves on the sea.
19 Your descendants would be like sand.
Your children would be like its grains.
Their names would not be cut off or wiped out in my presence.
20 Leave Babylon; flee from the Babylonians!
Shout for joy as you tell it and announce it.
Shout it out to the ends of the earth.
Say that the Lord has reclaimed his servant Jacob.
