Hosea 14:5-85 aI will be like the dew to Israel;
bhe shall blossom like the lily;
he shall take root like the trees cof Lebanon;
6his shoots shall spread out;
his beauty shall be dlike the olive,
and his fragrance like Lebanon.
7They shall return and edwell beneath my ▼
they shall flourish like the grain;
they shall blossom like the vine;
their fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon.
8 O gEphraim, what have I to do with idols?
It is I who answer and look after you. ▼
I am like an evergreen cypress;
ifrom me comes your fruit.
