The Response to God’s Rebuke1 a “Come, let us return to the Lord.
For b He has torn us, but c He will heal us;
He has ▼
▼ Lit struckwounded us, but He will e bandage us.
2“He will f revive us after two days;
He will g raise us up on the third day,
That we may live before Him.
3“So let us h know, let us press on to know the Lord.
His i going forth is as certain as the dawn;
And He will come to us like the j rain,
Like the spring rain watering the earth.”
4What shall I do with you, O k Ephraim?
What shall I do with you, O Judah?
For your ▼
▼ Or lovingkindnessloyalty is like a m morning cloud
And like the dew which goes away early.
5Therefore I have n hewn them in pieces by the prophets;
I have slain them by the o words of My mouth;
And the judgments on you are like the light that goes forth.
6For p I delight in loyalty q rather than sacrifice,
And in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
7But r like ▼
▼ Or menAdam they have t transgressed the covenant;
There they have u dealt treacherously against Me.
8 v Gilead is a city of wrongdoers,
Tracked with w bloody footprints.
9And as x raiders wait for a man,
So a band of priests y murder on the way to Shechem;
Surely they have committed ▼
▼ Or lewdness, aa crime.
10In the house of Israel I have seen a ab horrible thing;
Ephraim’s ac harlotry is there, Israel has defiled itself.
11Also, O Judah, there is a ad harvest appointed for you,
When I ae restore the fortunes of My people.
