Then, when I make atonement for you for all you have done, you will remember and be ashamed and never again open your mouth because of your humiliation, declares the Sovereign LORD.'"
They will forget their shame and all the unfaithfulness they showed toward me when they lived in safety in their land with no one to make them afraid.
