Hosea 11:1-11

1 "When Israel was a child, then I loved him,  And called my son out of Egypt.

2 They called to them, so they went from them.  They sacrificed to the Baals,  And burned incense to engraved images.

3 Yet I taught Ephraim to walk.  I took them by his arms;  But they didn't know that I healed them.

4 I drew them with cords of a man, with ties of love;  And I was to them like those who lift up the yoke on their necks;  And I bent down to him and I fed him. 

5 "They won't return into the land of Egypt;  But the Assyrian will be their king,  Because they refused to repent.

6 The sword will fall on their cities,  And will consume their gate bars,  And will put an end to their plans.

7 My people are determined to turn from me.  Though they call to the Most High,  He certainly won't exalt them. 

8 "How can I give you up, Ephraim?  How can I hand you over, Israel?  How can I make you like Admah?  How can I make you like Zeboiim?  My heart is turned within me,  My compassion is aroused.

9 I will not execute the fierceness of my anger.  I will not return to destroy Ephraim:  For I am God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of you;  And I will not come in wrath.

10 They will walk after Yahweh,  Who will roar like a lion;  For he will roar, and the children will come trembling from the west.

11 They will come trembling like a bird out of Egypt,  And like a dove out of the land of Assyria;  And I will settle them in their houses," says Yahweh.
