Chapter 6

1

Come, and let us return to the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

2

After two days will he revive us: in the third day will he raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

3

Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he will come to us as the rain, as the latter and former rain to the earth.

4

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

5

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.

6

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice: and the knowledge of God more than burnt-offerings.

7

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

8

Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity, and is polluted with blood.

9

And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness.

10

I have seen a horrible thing in the house of Israel: there is the prostitution of Ephraim, Israel is defiled.

11

Also, O Judah, he hath set a harvest for thee, when I returned the captivity of my people.

Hosea 7
