|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
13 I'll be a father to him, and he'll be a son to me. I will never remove my gracious love from him as I did from the one who preceded you.
13 I will be his father, and he will be my son. I will never take my love away from him, as I took it away from your predecessor.
