The love of Yahweh (Isa 54:7-54:8)

“‘For a brief moment,

I abandoned you.

But with great compassion,

I will gather you.

In overflowing wrath,

For a moment,

I hid my face from you.

But with everlasting love,

I will have compassion on you.’

Says Yahweh,

Your Redeemer.”

Second Isaiah shows that God did abandon Israel for a brief moment due to his overflowing wrath. However, Yahweh, the Redeemer, will now gather them back together. Although he had hid his face from Israel, he still had an everlasting love and compassion for them.
