O Israel,H3478 returnH7725 to the LORDH3068 your God;H430 for you have fallenH3782 by your iniquity.H5771
TakeH3947 with you words,H1697 and turnH7725 to the LORD:H3068 sayH559 to him, TakeH5375 away allH3605 iniquity,H5771 and receiveH3947 us graciously:H2896 so will we renderH7999 the calvesH6499 of our lips.H8193
AsshurH804 shall not saveH3467 us; we will not rideH7392 on horses:H5483 neitherH3808 will we sayH559 any moreH5750 to the workH4639 of our hands,H3027 You are our gods:H430 for in you the fatherlessH3490 finds mercy.H7355
I will healH7495 their backsliding,H4878 I will loveH157 them freely:H5071 for my angerH639 is turnedH7725 away from him.
I will be as the dewH2919 to Israel:H3478 he shall growH6524 as the lily,H7799 and castH5221 forthH5221 his rootsH8328 as Lebanon.H3844
His branchesH3127 shall spread,H3212 and his beautyH1935 shall be as the oliveH2132 tree, and his smellH7381 as Lebanon.H3844
They that dwellH3427 under his shadowH6738 shall return;H7725 they shall reviveH2421 as the corn,H1715 and growH6524 as the vine:H1612 the scentH2143 thereof shall be as the wineH8492 of Lebanon.H3844
EphraimH669 shall say, WhatH4100 have I to do any moreH5750 with idols?H6091 I have heardH6030 him, and observedH7789 him: I am like a greenH7488 firH1265 tree. From me is your fruitH6529 found.H4672
WhoH4310 is wise,H2450 and he shall understandH995 theseH428 things? prudent,H995 and he shall knowH3045 them? for the waysH1870 of the LORDH3068 are right,H3477 and the justH6662 shall walkH3212 in them: but the transgressorsH6586 shall fallH3782 therein.
