Isa 48:17-19 GNB
17 The holy God of Israel, the LORD who saves you, says: "I am the LORD your God, the one who wants to teach you for your own good and direct you in the way you should go.
18 "If only you had listened to my commands! Then blessings would have flowed for you like a stream that never goes dry. Victory would have come to you like the waves that roll on the shore.
19 Your descendants would be as numerous as grains of sand, and I would have made sure they were never destroyed."
