I ·became very angry [had a surge/burst of anger] and hid from you for a ·time [moment], but I will show you ·mercy [compassion] with ·kindness [lovingkindness; loyalty; covenant love] forever,” says the Lord ·who saves you [your redeemer].
Your Redeemer God says: “I left you, but only for a moment. Now, with enormous compassion, I’m bringing you back. In an outburst of anger I turned my back on you— but only for a moment. It’s with lasting love that I’m tenderly caring for you.
