Hosea 14:1-9

1 Israel, return to Yahweh your God;  For you have fallen because of your sin.

2 Take words with you, and return to Yahweh.  Tell him, "Forgive all our sins,  And accept that which is good:  So we offer like bulls our lips.

3 Assyria can't save us.  We won't ride on horses;  Neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, 'Our gods!'  For in you the fatherless finds mercy." 

4 "I will heal their waywardness.  I will love them freely;  For my anger is turned away from him.

5 I will be like the dew to Israel.  He will blossom like the lily,  And send down his roots like Lebanon.

6 His branches will spread,  And his beauty will be like the olive tree,  And his fragrance like Lebanon.

7 Men will dwell in his shade.  They will revive like the grain,  And blossom like the vine.  Their fragrance will be like the wine of Lebanon.

8 Ephraim, what have I to do any more with idols?  I answer, and will take care of him.  I am like a green fir tree;  From me your fruit is found." 

9 Who is wise, that he may understand these things?  Who is prudent, that he may know them?  For the ways of Yahweh are right,  And the righteous walk in them;  But the rebellious stumble in them.
