Isaiah 54:4–8

“Do not be afraid;f you will not be put to shame.g

Do not fear disgrace;h you will not be humiliated.

You will forget the shame of your youthi

and remember no more the reproachj of your widowhood.k

For your Makerl is your husbandm

the Lord Almighty is his name—

the Holy Onen of Israel is your Redeemer;o

he is called the God of all the earth.p

The Lord will call you backq

as if you were a wife desertedr and distressed in spirit—

a wife who married young,s

only to be rejected,” says your God.

“For a brief momentt I abandonedu you,

but with deep compassionv I will bring you back.w

In a surge of angerx

I hidy my face from you for a moment,

but with everlasting kindnessz

I will have compassiona on you,”

says the Lord your Redeemer.b
