14 O Israel, areturn unto the Lord thy God;

For thou hast bfallen by thine iniquity.

Take with you words, and aturn to the Lord:

Say unto him, cTake away all iniquity, and ||receive us graciously:

So dwill we render the calves of our lips.

eAsshur shall not save us; fwe will not ride upon horses:

gNeither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods:

For hin thee the fatherless findeth mercy.

iI will heal iktheir backsliding, lI will love them mfreely:

For mine anger is turned away from him.

I will be nas the dew unto Israel:

He shall ||grow as othe lily,

pqAnd cast forth his roots as Lebanon.

qHis branches shall spread,

And his rbeauty shall be sas the olive tree,

And this smell as Lebanon.

quThey that dwell under his shadow shall return;

They shall revive as the corn, and ||grow as the vine:

The ||scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.

Ephraim shall say, gvWhat have I to do any more with idols?

I have wheard him, and xobserved him:

qsI am like a green fir tree.

yFrom me is thy fruit found.

zWho is wise, and he shall understand these things?

Prudent, and he shall know them?

For athe ways of the Lord are bright,

And cthe just shall walk in them:

cBut the transgressors shall dfall therein.
