HOS 14:1 Turn back, O Israel, unto Jehovah thy God, For thou hast stumbled by thine iniquity.
HOS 14:2 Take with you words, and turn to Jehovah, Say ye unto Him: `Take away all iniquity, and give good, And we do render the fruit of our lips.
HOS 14:3 Asshur doth not save us, on a horse we ride not, Nor do we say any more, Our God, to the work of our hands, For in Thee find mercy doth the fatherless.'
HOS 14:4 I heal their backsliding, I love them freely, For turned back hath Mine anger from him.
HOS 14:5 I am as dew to Israel, he flourisheth as a lily, And he striketh forth his roots as Lebanon.
HOS 14:6 Go on do his sucklings, And his beauty is as an olive, And he hath fragrance as Lebanon.
HOS 14:7 Return do the dwellers under his shadow, They revive `as' corn, and flourish as a vine, His memorial `is' as wine of Lebanon.
HOS 14:8 O Ephraim, what to Me any more with idols? I -- I afflicted, and I cause him to sing: `I `am' as a green fir-tree,' From Me is thy fruit found.
HOS 14:9 Who `is' wise, and doth understand these? Prudent, and knoweth them? For upright are the ways of Jehovah, And the righteous go on in them, And the transgressors stumble therein!
