Jeremiah 3:18-20 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

18 In those days the nation of Judah will live with the nation of Israel. They will come together from the land of the north to the land that I gave their ancestors as their own property.

19 “I wanted to treat you like children
    and give you a pleasant land,
        the most beautiful property among the nations.
I thought that you would call me Father and wouldn’t turn away from me.
20 But like a wife who betrays her husband,
    so you, nation of Israel, betrayed me,” declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 3:18-20 New International Version (NIV)

18 In those days the people of Judah will join the people of Israel, and together they will come from a northern land to the land I gave your ancestors as an inheritance.

19 “I myself said,

“‘How gladly would I treat you like my children
    and give you a pleasant land,
    the most beautiful inheritance of any nation.’
I thought you would call me ‘Father’
    and not turn away from following me.
20 But like a woman unfaithful to her husband,
    so you, Israel, have been unfaithful to me,”
declares the Lord.
