Hosea 11


Hosea 11:1 When Israel was a youth I loved him, And out of Egypt I called My son.
Hosea 11:2 The more they called them, The more they went from them; They kept sacrificing to the Baals And burning incense to idols.
Hosea 11:3 Yet it is I who taught Ephraim to walk, I took them in My arms; But they did not know that I healed them.
Hosea 11:4 I led them with cords of a man, with bonds of love, And I became to them as one who lifts the yoke from their jaws; And I bent down and fed them.
Hosea 11:5 They will not return to the land of Egypt; But Assyria"he will be their king Because they refused to return to Me.
Hosea 11:6 The sword will whirl against their cities, And will demolish their gate bars And consume them because of their counsels.
Hosea 11:7 So My people are bent on turning from Me. Though they call them to the One on high, None at all exalts Him.
Hosea 11:8 How can I give you up, O Ephraim? How can I surrender you, O Israel? How can I make you like Admah? How can I treat you like Zeboiim? My heart is turned over within Me, All My compassions are kindled.
Hosea 11:9 I will not execute My fierce anger; I will not destroy Ephraim again. For I am God and not man, the Holy One in your midst, And I will not come in wrath.
Hosea 11:10 They will walk after the Lord, He will roar like a lion; Indeed He will roar And His sons will come trembling from the west.
Hosea 11:11 They will come trembling like birds from Egypt And like doves from the land of Assyria; And I will settle them in their houses, declares the Lord.
Hosea 11:12 Ephraim surrounds Me with lies And the house of Israel with deceit; Judah is also unruly against God, Even against the Holy One who is faithful.
