|Good News Translation (GNT)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 In the desert I showed mercy to those people who had escaped death. When the people of Israel longed for rest,
2 This is what the LORD says: "The people who survive the sword will find favor in the desert; I will come to give rest to Israel."
