NASB — Hosea 6 — KJV

The Response to God’s Rebuke

  1aCome, let us return to the LORD.
  For bHe has torn [us], but cHe will heal us;
  He has Iwounded [us], but He will dbandage us.
  2 “He will arevive us after two days;
  He will braise us up on the third day,
  That we may live before Him.
  3 “So let us aknow, let us press on to know the LORD.
  His bgoing forth is as certain as the dawn;
  And He will come to us like the crain,
  Like the spring rain watering the earth.”

  4 ¶ What shall I do with you, O aEphraim?
  What shall I do with you, O Judah?
  For your Iloyalty is like a bmorning cloud
  And like the dew which goes away early.
  5 Therefore I have ahewn [them] in pieces by the prophets;
  I have slain them by the bwords of My mouth;
  And the judgments on you are [like] the light that goes forth.
  6 For aI delight in loyalty brather than sacrifice,
  And in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
  7 But alike IAdam they have btransgressed the covenant;
  There they have cdealt treacherously against Me.
  8 aGilead is a city of wrongdoers,
  Tracked with bbloody [footprints].
  9 And as araiders wait for a man,
  [So] a band of priests bmurder on the way to Shechem;
  Surely they have committed Iccrime.
  10 In the house of Israel I have seen a ahorrible thing;
  Ephraim’s bharlotry is there, Israel has defiled itself.
  11 Also, O Judah, there is a aharvest appointed for you,
  When I brestore the fortunes of My people.

An exhortation to repentance.

1 ¶ Come, and let us return unto 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 he will 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 shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter [and] former rain unto the earth.

A complaint of their untowardness and iniquity.

4 ¶ O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness [is] as a 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 an horrible thing in the house of Israel: there [is] the whoredom of Ephraim, Israel is defiled. 11 Also, O Judah, he hath set an harvest for thee, when I returned the captivity of my people.
