Hosea 6
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1“Come, and we turn back to YHWH, "" For He has torn, and He heals us, "" He strikes, and He binds us up.

2He revives us after two days, "" In the third day He raises us up, "" And we live before Him.

3And we know—we pursue to know YHWH, "" His going forth is prepared as the dawn, "" And He comes in as a shower to us, "" As spring rain [and] autumn rain to the earth.”

4“What do I do to you, O Ephraim? What do I do to you, O Judah? Your goodness [is] as a cloud of the morning, "" And as dew rising early—going.

5Therefore I have hewed by prophets, "" I have slain them by sayings of My mouth, "" And My judgments go forth to the light.

6For kindness I desired, and not sacrifice, "" And a knowledge of God above burnt-offerings.

7And they, as Adam, transgressed a covenant, "" There they dealt treacherously against Me.

8Gilead [is] a city of workers of iniquity, "" Slippery from blood.

9And as bands wait for a man, "" A company of priests murder—the way to Shechem, "" For they have done wickedness.

10In the house of Israel I have seen a horrible thing, "" There [is] the whoredom of Ephraim—Israel is defiled.

11Also, O Judah, a harvest is appointed to you, "" In My turning back [to] the captivity of My people!”
