1

O israel, return unto the LORD your God; for you have fallen by yours iniquity.

2

Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.

3

Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, All of you are our gods: for in you the fatherless finds mercy.

4

I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

5

I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

6

His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

7

They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

8

Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is your fruit found.

9

Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.
