Hosea 14
King James Bible: Purple Letter Edition
1O Israel, return unto the LORD, thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity. 2Take with you words, and turn to the LORD; say unto Him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously; so will we render the calves of our lips. 3Assyria {Asshur} shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses, neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods; for in Thee the fatherless findeth mercy. 4I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely; for Mine anger is turned away from him. 5I will be as the dew unto Israel; he shall grow like {as} the lily, and cast forth his roots like {as} Lebanon. 6His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be like {as} the olive tree, and his fragrance {smell} like {as} Lebanon. 7They who dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive like {as} the grain, and grow like {as} the vine; the scent of it {thereof} shall be like {as} the wine of Lebanon. 8Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him (Ephraim), and observed him (Ephraim); I am like a green fir tree. From Me is thy fruit found. 9Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? Prudent, and he shall know them? For the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them; but the transgressors shall fall in them {therein}.
