“Fear not, (A)for you will not be ashamed;
    be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced;
for you will forget the shame of your youth,
    and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.
(B)For your Maker is your husband,
    the Lord of hosts is his name;
(C)and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,
    (D)the God of the whole earth he is called.
(E)For the Lord has called you
    like a wife deserted and grieved in spirit,
like a wife of youth when she is cast off,
    says your God.
(F)For a brief moment I deserted you,
    but with great compassion I will gather you.
(G)In overflowing anger for a moment
    I hid my face from you,
(H)but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,”
    says the Lord, your Redeemer.

“This is like (I)the days of Noah[a] to me:
    as I swore that the waters of Noah
    should no more go over the earth,
so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you,
    and will not rebuke you.
10 For the mountains may depart
    and the hills be removed,
but my steadfast love shall not depart from you,
    and (J)my covenant of peace shall not be removed,”
    says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
