Hosea 14

Israel's Future Blessing

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 iniquity

And receive us graciously,

That we may present the fruit of our lips.

3“Assyria will not save us,

We will not ride on horses;

Nor will we say again, ‘Our god,'

To the work of our hands;

For in You the orphan finds mercy.”

4I will heal their apostasy,

I will love them freely,

For My anger has turned away from them.

5I will be like the dew to Israel;

He will blossom like the lily,

And he will take root like the cedars of Lebanon.

6His shoots will sprout,

And his beauty will be like the olive tree

And his fragrance like the cedars of Lebanon.

7Those who live in his shadow

Will again raise grain,

And they will blossom like the vine.

His renown will be like the wine of Lebanon.

8O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols?

It is I who answer and look after you.

I am like a luxuriant cypress;

From Me comes your fruit.

9Whoever is wise, let him understand these things;

Whoever is discerning, let him know them.

For the ways of the Lord are right,

And the righteous will walk in them,

But transgressors will stumble in them.
