1 When Israel was a youth I loved him,
The more they went from 1them;
They kept bsacrificing to the Baals
And cburning incense to idols.
But they did not know that I bhealed them.
4 I aled them with cords of a man, with bonds of love,
And bI became to them as one who lifts the yoke from their jaws;
And I bent down and cfed them.
