Hosea 14

NCV 1 Israel, return to the Lord your God, because your sins have made you fall. NIV 1 Return, Israel, to the LORD your God. Your sins have been your downfall! NCV 2 Come back to the Lord and say these words to him: "Take away all our sin and kindly receive us, and we will keep the promises we made to you. NIV 2 Take words with you and return to the LORD. Say to him: “Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips. NCV 3 Assyria cannot save us, nor will we trust in our horses. We will not say again, 'Our gods,' to the things our hands have made. You show mercy to orphans." NIV 3 Assyria cannot save us; we will not mount warhorses. We will never again say ‘Our gods’ to what our own hands have made, for in you the fatherless find compassion.” NCV 4 The Lord says, "I will forgive them for leaving me and will love them freely, because I am not angry with them anymore. NIV 4 “I will heal their waywardness and love them freely, for my anger has turned away from them. NCV 5 I will be like the dew to Israel, and they will blossom like a lily. Like the cedar trees in Lebanon, their roots will be firm. NIV 5 I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like a lily. Like a cedar of Lebanon he will send down his roots; NCV 6 They will be like spreading branches, like the beautiful olive trees and the sweet-smelling cedars in Lebanon. NIV 6 his young shoots will grow. His splendor will be like an olive tree, his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon. NCV 7 The people of Israel will again live under my protection. They will grow like the grain, they will bloom like a vine, and they will be as famous as the wine of Lebanon. NIV 7 People will dwell again in his shade; they will flourish like the grain, they will blossom like the vine— Israel’s fame will be like the wine of Lebanon. NCV 8 Israel, have nothing to do with idols. I, the Lord, am the one who answers your prayers and watches over you. I am like a green pine tree; your blessings come from me." NIV 8 Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols? I will answer him and care for him. I am like a flourishing juniper; your fruitfulness comes from me.” NCV 9 A wise person will know these things, and an understanding person will take them to heart. The Lord's ways are right. Good people live by following them, but those who turn against God die because of them. NIV 9 Who is wise? Let them realize these things. Who is discerning? Let them understand. The ways of the LORD are right; the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.
