Original text and translations
7. For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
8. In a little wrath I hid My face from thee for a moment;
but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer.
10.For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed;
but My kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed,
saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.
