Hosea 14:3-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 Assyria cannot save us;1 we will not mount war-horses.2 We will never again say 'Our gods'3 to what our own hands have made,4 for in you the fatherless5 find compassion." 4 "I will heal6 their waywardness7 and love them freely,8 for my anger has turned away9 from them. 5 I will be like the dew10 to Israel; he will blossom like a lily.11 Like a cedar of Lebanon12 he will send down his roots;13 6 his young shoots will grow. His splendor will be like an olive tree,14 his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon.15 7 Men will dwell again in his shade.16 He will flourish like the grain. He will blossom17 like a vine, and his fame will be like the wine18 from Lebanon.19 8 O Ephraim, what more have Ia to do with idols?20 I will answer him and care for him. I am like a green pine21 tree; your fruitfulness comes from me." 9 Who is wise?22 He will realize these things. Who is discerning? He will understand them.23 The ways of the LORD are right;24 the righteous walk25 in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.
