Hosea 11:7-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
7 My people are determined to turn1 from me.2 Even if they call to the Most High, he will by no means exalt them. 8 "How can I give you up,3 Ephraim?4 How can I hand you over, Israel? How can I treat you like Admah? How can I make you like Zeboiim?5 My heart is changed within me; all my compassion6 is aroused.7 9 I will not carry out my fierce anger,8 nor will I turn and devastate9 Ephraim. For I am God, and not man10-- the Holy One11 among you. I will not come in wrath.a 10 They will follow the LORD; he will roar12 like a lion.13 When he roars, his children will come trembling14 from the west.15 11 They will come trembling like birds from Egypt, like doves16 from Assyria.17 I will settle them in their homes,"18 declares the LORD.

Israel's Sin

12 Ephraim has surrounded me with lies,19 the house of Israel with deceit. And Judah is unruly against God, even against the faithful20 Holy One.21
