Chapter 6



  Come, and let us return unto Jehovah; for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.  





  After two days will he revive us: on the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live before him.  





  And let us know, let us follow on to know Jehovah: his going forth is sure as the morning; and he will come unto us as the rain, as the latter rain that watereth the earth.  





  O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the dew that goeth early away.  





  Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are [as] the light that goeth forth.  





  For I desire goodness, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt-offerings.  





  But they like Adam have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.  





  Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity; it is stained with blood.  





  And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way toward Shechem; yea, they have committed lewdness.  





  In the house of Israel I have seen a horrible thing: there whoredom is [found] in Ephraim, Israel is defiled.  





  Also, O Judah, there is a harvest appointed for thee, when I bring back the captivity of my people.
