Hosea 61 In their affliction they will seek Me early, saying, Let us go, and return to the Lord our God; for He has torn, and will heal us; He will smite, and bind us up. 2 After two days He will heal us: in the third day we shall arise, and live before Him, and shall know Him. 3 Let us follow on to know the Lord: we shall find Him ready as the morning, and He will come to us as the early and latter rain to the earth. 4 What shall I do unto you, Ephraim? What shall I do to you, Judah? For your mercy is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew that goes away. 5 Therefore have I mown down your prophets; I have slain them with the word of My mouth; and My judgment shall go forth as the light. 6 For I desire mercy rather than sacrifice, and the knowledge of God rather than whole burnt offerings. 7 But they are as a man transgressing a covenant. 8 There the city Gilead despised Me, working vanity, troubling water. 9 And your strength is that of a robber: the priests have hid the way, they have murdered the people of Shechem; for they have wrought iniquity in the house of Israel. 10 I have seen horrible things there, even the fornication of Ephraim. Israel and Judah are defiled; 11 begin together grapes for yourself, when I turn the captivity of My people.
