Chapter 14

1

O Israel, return unto Yahweh thy Elohim; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.

2

Take with you words, and return unto Yahweh: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and accept that which is good: so will we render as bullocks the offering of our lips.

3

Assyria shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses; neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our elohim; for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.

4

I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely; for mine anger is turned away from him.

5

I will be as the dew unto Israel; he shall blossom as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

6

His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive-tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

7

They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the grain, and blossom as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

8

Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have answered, and will regard him: I am like a green fir-tree; from me is thy fruit found.

9

Who is wise, that he may understand these things? prudent, that he may know them? for the ways of Yahweh are right, and the just shall walk in them; but transgressors shall fall therein.
