1Return, O Israel, to the LORD your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity. 2Take words with you and return to the LORD; say to him, “Take away all guilt; accept that which is good, and we will offer the fruit h Gk Syr: Heb bulls of our lips. 3Assyria shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses; we will say no more, ‘Our God,’ to the work of our hands. In you the orphan finds mercy.” 4I will heal their disloyalty; I will love them freely, for my anger has turned from them. 5I will be like the dew to Israel; he shall blossom like the lily, he shall strike root like the forests of Lebanon. a Cn: Heb like Lebanon 6His shoots shall spread out; his beauty shall be like the olive tree, and his fragrance like that of Lebanon. 7They shall again live beneath my b Heb his shadow, they shall flourish as a garden; c Cn: Heb they shall grow grain they shall blossom like the vine, their fragrance shall be like the wine of Lebanon.

8O Ephraim, what have I d Or What more has Ephraim to do with idols? It is I who answer and look after you. e Heb him I am like an evergreen cypress; your faithfulness f Heb your fruit comes from me. 9Those who are wise understand these things; those who are discerning know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, and the upright walk in them, but transgressors stumble in them.
