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