Hosea 14
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Yahweh’s Anger Turns Away from Israel

1[†]Return, O Israel, to Yahweh your God,

For you have stumbled in your iniquity.

2Take words with you and return to Yahweh.

Say to Him, “Forgive all iniquity

And [†]take what is good,

That we may pay in full [†]the fruit of our lips.

3Assyria will not save us;

We will not ride on horses,

Nor will we say again, ‘Our god,’

To the work of our hands;

For in You the [†]orphan finds compassion.”

4I will heal their turning away from Me;

I will love them freely,

For My anger has turned away from them.

5I will be like the dew to Israel;

He will flourish like the lily,

And he will [†]take root like the cedars of Lebanon.

6His shoots will go forth,

And his splendor will be like the olive tree

And his fragrance like the cedars of Lebanon.

7Those who live in his shadow

Will [†]again raise grain,

And they will flourish like the vine.

His name of remembrance will be like the wine of Lebanon.

8O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols?

It is I who answer and look after [†]you.

I am like a luxuriant cypress;

From Me [†]comes your fruit.

9Whoever is wise, so let him discern these things;

Whoever is discerning, let him know them.

For the ways of Yahweh are right,

And the righteous will walk in them,

But transgressors will stumble in them.

1 Ch 14:2 in Heb
2 Or accept that which is good
2 As in ancient versions; M.T. our lips as bulls
3 Or fatherless
5 Lit strike his roots
7 Or return, they will raise grain
8 Lit him
8 Lit is found
