NASB — Hosea 11 — KJV

God Yearns over His People

  1 When Israel [was] a youth I loved him,
  And aout of Egypt I bcalled My son.
  2 The more Iathey called them,
  The more they went from Ithem;
  They kept bsacrificing to the Baals
  And cburning incense to idols.
  3 Yet it is I who taught Ephraim to walk,
  II atook them in My arms;
  But they did not know that I bhealed them.
  4 I aled them with cords of a man, with bonds of love,
  And bI became to them as one who lifts the yoke from their jaws;
  And I bent down [and] cfed them.

  And [His] sons will come ctrembling from the west.

The ingratitude of Israel unto God for his benefits.

1 ¶ When Israel [was] a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt. 2 [As] they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images. 3 I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them. 4 I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.

His judgment.

5 ¶ He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return. 6 And the sword shall abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches, and devour [them], because of their own counsels. 7 And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt [him].

God's mercy toward them.

8 How shall I give thee up, Ephraim? [how] shall I deliver thee, Israel? how shall I make thee as Admah? [how] shall I set thee as Zeboim? mine heart is turned within me, my repentings are kindled together. 9 I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I [am] God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city. 10 They shall walk after the LORD: he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west. 11 They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of Assyria: and I will place them in their houses, saith the LORD. 12 Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.
