Isaiah 54:4–10

“Do not be afraid, for you will not be put to shame;r

don’t be humiliated, for you will not be disgraced.

For you will forget the shame of your youth,

and you will no longer remember

the disgrace of your widowhood.s

Indeed, your husband is your Makert

his name is the Lord of Armies—

and the Holy One of Israelu is your Redeemer;v

he is called the God of the whole earth.

For the Lord has called you,

like a wife deserted and wounded in spirit,w

a wife of one’s youthx when she is rejected,”

says your God.

“I deserted you for a brief moment,y

but I will take you back with abundant compassion.

In a surge of anger

I hid my facez from you for a moment,

but I will have compassion on you

with everlasting love,”aa

says the Lord your Redeemer.

“For this is like the daysF of Noah to me:

when I swore that the water of Noah

would never flood the earth again,ab

so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you

or rebuke you.ac

10 Though the mountains move

and the hills shake,

my love will not be removed from you

and my covenant of peacead will not be shaken,”

says your compassionate Lord.
