Hosea 14: 5-10 PDF Print E-mail

I will heal their defection, I will love them freely;
for my wrath is turned away from them.
I will be like the dew for Israel: he shall blossom like the lily;
He shall strike root like the Lebanon cedar, and put forth his shoots.
His splendor shall be like the olive tree and his fragrance like the Lebanon cedar.

Again they shall dwell in his shade and raise grain;
They shall blossom like the vine, and his fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon.
Ephraim! What more has he to do with idols?
I have humbled him, but I will prosper him.
"I am like a verdant cypress tree"--
Because of me you bear fruit!
Let him who is wise understand these things;
let him who is prudent know them.
