Come,H3212 and let us returnH7725 to the LORD:H3068 for he has torn,H2963 and he will healH7495 us; he has smitten,H5221 and he will bindH2280 us up.
After two daysH3117 will he reviveH2421 us: in the thirdH7992 dayH3117 he will raiseH6965 us up, and we shall liveH2421 in his sight.H6440
Then shall we know,H3045 if we followH7291 on to knowH3045 the LORD:H3068 his goingH4161 forthH4161 is preparedH3559 as the morning;H7837 and he shall comeH935 to us as the rain,H1653 as the latterH4456 and formerH3138 rainH3384 to the earth.H776

But they like menH120 have transgressedH5674 the covenant:H1285 thereH8033 have they dealt treacherouslyH898 against me.
GileadH1568 is a cityH7151 of them that workH6466 iniquity,H205 and is pollutedH6121 with blood.H1818
