|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
8 "But I will not destroy them all," says the LORD. "For just as good grapes are found among a cluster of bad ones (and someone will say, 'Don't throw them all away -- there are some good grapes there!'), so I will not destroy all Israel. For I still have true servants there.
8 This is what the LORD says: "As when juice is still found in a cluster of grapes and men say, 'Don't destroy it, there is yet some good in it,' so will I do in behalf of my servants; I will not destroy them all.
