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
