Jeremiah 3:18-20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
18 In those days the house of Judah will walk alongside the house of Israel; together they will come from the land of the north to the land which I gave your ancestors as a heritage.
Conditions for Forgiveness
19 I thought:
How I would like to make you my children!
So I gave you a pleasant land,
the most beautiful heritage among the nations!
You would call me, “My Father,” I thought,
and you would never turn away from me.
20 But like a woman faithless to her lover,
thus have you been faithless to me,
house of Israel—oracle of the Lord.
