1 H3478 When Israel H5288 was a child, H157 then I loved H7121 him, and called H1121 my son H4714 out of Egypt.
2 H7121 The more the prophets called H1980 them, the more they went H6440 from them: H2076 they sacrificed H1168 unto the Baalim, H6999 and burned incense H6456 to graven images.
3 H8637 Yet I taught H669 Ephraim H8637 to walk; H3947 I took H2220 them on my arms; H3045 but they knew H7495 not that I healed them.
4 H4900 I drew H2256 them with cords H120 of a man, H5688 with bands H160 of love; H7311 and I was to them as they that lift up H5923 the yoke H3895 on their jaws; H5186 and I laid H398 food before them.
5 H7725 They shall not return H776 into the land H4714 of Egypt; H804 but the Assyrian H4428 shall be their king, H3985 because they refused H7725 to return to me.
6 H2719 And the sword H2342 shall fall H5892 upon their cities, H3615 and shall consume H905 their bars, H398 and devour H4156 them, because of their own counsels.
7 H5971 And my people H8511 are bent H4878 on backsliding H7121 from me: though they call H5920 them to him that is on high, H3162 none at all H7311 will exalt him.
8 H5414 How shall I give thee up, H669 Ephraim? H4042 how shall I cast H3478 thee off, Israel? H5414 how shall I make H126 thee as Admah? H7760 how shall I set H6636 thee as Zeboiim? H3820 my heart H2015 is turned H5150 within me, my compassions H3648 are kindled H3162 together.
9 H6213 I will not execute H2740 the fierceness H639 of mine anger, H7725 I will not return H7843 to destroy H669 Ephraim: H410 for I am God, H376 and not man; H6918 the Holy One H7130 in the midst H935 of thee; and I will not come H5892 in wrath.
10 H3212 They shall walk H310 after H3068 Jehovah, H7580 who will roar H738 like a lion; H7580 for he will roar, H1121 and the children H2729 shall come trembling H3220 from the west.
11 H2729 They shall come trembling H6833 as a bird H4714 out of Egypt, H3123 and as a dove H776 out of the land H804 of Assyria; H3427 and I will make H1004 them to dwell in their houses, H5002 saith H3068 Jehovah.
