11 aWhen Israel was a child, then bI loved him,

And ccalled dmy son out of Egypt.

As ethey called them, so they went from them:

fThey sacrificed unto Baalim, and fburned incense to graven images.

gI taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms;

But they knew not that hI healed them.

iI drew them with cords kof a man, with bands of love:

And lI was to them kas they that take off the yoke on their jaws,

And mI laid meat unto them.

nHe shall not return into the land of Egypt,

But othe Assyrian shall be his king,

pBecause they refused to return.

*And the sword shall qabide on his cities,

And shall consume his rbranches, and devour them,

sBecause of their own counsels.

And my people are bent tto backsliding from me:

eThough they called them to uthe most High,

None at all would vexalt him.

wHow shall I give thee up, Ephraim?

How shall I deliver thee, Israel?

How shall I make thee as xyAdmah?

How shall I set thee as yZeboim?

Mine heart is turned zwithin me,

aMy repentings bare kindled together.

I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger,

I will not return to destroy Ephraim:

cFor I am God, and not man;

dThe Holy One din the midst of thee:

And I will not enter into the city.

10  eThey shall walk after the Lord: fhe shall roar glike a lion:

When he shall roar, then the children shall tremble hfrom the west.

11  They shall tremble as a bird iout of Egypt,

And jas a dove ikout of the land of Assyria:

And lI will place them in their houses, saith the Lord.

12  Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit:

mBut Judah yet nruleth with God, and is faithful ||with othe saints.
