Isaiah 54:3-5 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

    because you will grow in all directions.
Your children will take over many nations
    and live in the cities that were destroyed.
Don’t be afraid!
    You will not be disappointed.
People will not say bad things against you.
    You will not be embarrassed.
When you were young, you felt shame.
    But you will forget that shame now.
You will not remember the shame you felt
    when you lost your husband.[a]
Your real husband is the one who made you.
    His name is the Lord All-Powerful.
The Holy One of Israel is your Protector,[b]
    and he is the God of all the earth!

Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 54:4 husband In Hebrew this word is like the name Baal. This means that the Lord is Jerusalem’s true God, not the false god Baal.
  2. Isaiah 54:5 Protector Or “Redeemer,” someone who cared for and protected the family of a dead relative. Often this person bought back (redeemed) the poor relatives from slavery, making them free again.
