Hosea 6

He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. NIRV 2 After two days he will give us new life. On the third day he'll make us like new again. Then we will enjoy his blessing. NIV 2 After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence. NIRV 3 Let's recognize him as the Lord.

He will be like the spring rains that water the earth." NIV 3 Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him.

NIV 6 For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings. NIRV 7 Just as Adam disobeyed me, you have broken the covenant I made with you. You were not faithful to me in the land I gave you. NIV 7 As at Adam, they have broken the covenant; they were unfaithful to me there. NIRV 8 Ramoth Gilead is a city where sinful people live. It is stained with footprints of blood. NIV 8 Gilead is a city of evildoers, stained with footprints of blood. NIRV 9 On the road to Shechem, groups of priests act like robbers. They hide and wait to attack people. They murder them and commit other shameful crimes. NIV 9 As marauders lie in ambush for a victim, so do bands of priests; they murder on the road to Shechem, carrying out their wicked schemes.

NIV 10 I have seen a horrible thing in Israel: There Ephraim is given to prostitution, Israel is defiled. NIRV 11 "People of Judah, I have appointed a time for you to be destroyed.
