Hosea 14

Israel’s Future Blessing

Ch 14:2 in Heb
,
b Return, O Israel, to the  Lord your God,
For you have stumbled
Or in
because of your d iniquity.
Take words with you and return to the  Lord.
Say to Him, e Take away all iniquity
And
Or accept that which is good
receive us graciously,
That we may g present
So with ancient versions; M.T. our lips as bulls
the fruit of our lips.
Assyria will not save us,
We will i not ride on horses;
Nor will we say again, ‘ j Our god,’
To the k work of our hands;
For in l You the
Or fatherless
orphan finds mercy.”

I will n heal their apostasy,
I will o love them freely,
For My anger has p turned away from them.
I will be like the q dew to Israel;
He will blossom like the r lily,
And he will
Lit strike his roots
take root like the cedars of t Lebanon.
His shoots will
Lit go
sprout,
And his
Or splendor
beauty will be like the w olive tree
And his fragrance like the cedars of x Lebanon.
Those who y live in his shadow
Will
Or return, they will raise grain
again raise aa grain,
And they will blossom like the vine.
His renown will be like the wine of Lebanon.

O Ephraim, what more have I to do with ab idols?
It is I who answer and look after
Lit him
you.
I am like a luxuriant ad cypress;
From ae Me comes your fruit.

af Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;
Whoever is discerning, let him know them.
For the ag ways of the  Lord are right,
And the ah righteous will walk in them,
But ai transgressors will stumble in them.
