Hosea 6
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

The Unrepentance of Israel and Judah

1Go ye and we will turn back to Jehovah: for he rent and he will heal us; he will strike, and he will bind us up.

2He will revive us after two days: in the third day he will raise us up and we shall live before him.

3And we shall know, we shall pursue to know Jehovah: as the morning his going forth was prepared; and he shall come as the rain to us, as the latter rain, the early rain of the earth.

4What shall I do to thee, O Ephraim? What shall I do to thee, O Judah? and your kindness as the cloud of the morning, and as the dew being early went away.

5For this I cut off by the prophets; I slew them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments the light going forth.

6For I delighted in mercy and not sacrifice; the knowledge of God more than burnt-offerings.

7And they as man passed by the covenant: there they acted faithlessly against me.

8Gilead a city working vanity, defrauding from blood.

9As troops waiting for a man, the company of priests will break in pieces the way with the shoulder: for they did wickedness.

10In the house of Israel I saw something horrible: there the fornications to Ephraim, Israel was defiled.

11Also, O Judah, he set a harvest for thee in my turning back the captivity of my people.
