4 The LORD says, "Then I will heal you of your idolatry and faithlessness, and my love will know no bounds, for my anger will be gone forever! 4 "I will heal their waywardness and love them freely, for my anger has turned away from them.
5 I will be to Israel like a refreshing dew from heaven. It will blossom like the lily; it will send roots deep into the soil like the cedars in Lebanon. 5 I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like a lily. Like a cedar of Lebanon he will send down his roots;
6 Its branches will spread out like those of beautiful olive trees, as fragrant as the cedar forests of Lebanon. 6 his young shoots will grow. His splendor will be like an olive tree, his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon.
7 My people will return again to the safety of their land. They will flourish like grain and blossom like grapevines. They will be as fragrant as the wines of Lebanon. 7 Men will dwell again in his shade. He will flourish like the grain. He will blossom like a vine, and his fame will be like the wine from Lebanon.
