Holman Christian Standard Bible
2 This is what the Lord says:
They found favor in the wilderness(A)—
the people who survived the sword.
When Israel went to find rest,
3 the Lord appeared to him[a] from far away.
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
therefore, I have continued to extend faithful love to you.(B)
- Jeremiah 31:3 LXX; MT reads me
