Hosea 11

11:1 Because Israel [is] a youth, and I love him, Out of Egypt I have called for My Son. 11:2 They have called to them rightly, They have gone from before them, To lords they do sacrifice, And to graven images they make perfume. 11:3 And I have caused Ephraim to go on foot, Taking them by their arms, And they have not known that I strengthened them. 11:4 With cords of man I do draw them, With thick cords of love, And I am to them as a raiser up of a yoke on their jaws, And I incline unto him--I feed [him] . 11:5 He turneth not back unto the land of Egypt, And Asshur--he [is] his king, For they have refused to return. 11:6 Grievous hath been the sword in his cities, And it hath ended his bars, and consumed--from their own counsels. 11:7 And My people are hanging in suspense, about My returning, And unto the Most High they do call, Together they exalt not.  11:8 How do I give thee up, O Ephraim Do I deliver thee up, O Israel How do I make thee as Admah Do I set thee as Zeboim Turned in Me is My heart, kindled together have been My repentings. 11:9 I do not the fierceness of My anger, I turn not back to destroy Ephraim, For God I [am] , and not a man. In thy midst the Holy One, and I enter not in enmity, 11:10 After Jehovah they go--as a lion He roareth, When He doth roar, then tremble do the sons from the west. 11:11 They tremble as a sparrow out of Egypt, And as a dove out of the land of Asshur, And I have caused them to dwell in their own houses, An affirmation of Jehovah. 11:12 Compassed Me with feigning hath Ephraim, And with deceit the house of Israel. And Judah again is ruling with God, And with the Holy Ones [is] faithful!
