‘Can a woman forget her baby?’ Isaiah 49.15 VOTD

“Can a woman forget her baby who nurses at her breast?
Can she withhold compassion from the child she has borne?
Even if mothers were to forget,
I could never forget you!”

Isaiah 49.15

God uses the figure of a mother to describe his compassion for Israel.

Can God truly be understood in human language? What dangers lurk here?
