Holman Christian Standard Bible
7 “I deserted you for a brief moment,(A)
but I will take you back with great compassion.
8 In a surge of anger
I hid My face(B) from you for a moment,
but I will have compassion on you
with everlasting love,”(C)
says the Lord your Redeemer.
9 “For this is like the days[a] of Noah to Me:
when I swore that the waters of Noah
would never flood the earth again,(D)
so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you
or rebuke you.(E)
10 Though the mountains move
and the hills shake,
My love will not be removed from you
and My covenant of peace(F) will not be shaken,”
says your compassionate Lord.
- Isaiah 54:9 DSS, Cairo Geniza; MT, LXX read waters
