6 Come, and alet us return unto the Lord:

For bhe hath ctorn, and bdhe will heal us;

He hath smitten, and ehe will bind us up.

After two days will fhe revive us:

gIn the third day he will raise us up,

And we shall live in his sight.

hThen shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord:

iHis going forth is prepared jas the morning;

And khe shall come unto us as the rain,

As lmthe latter and lformer rain unto the earth.

nO Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee?

nO Judah, what shall I do unto thee?

For your ||goodness is oas a morning cloud,

oAnd as the early dew it goeth away.

Therefore have I hewed them pby the prophets;

I have slain them qby the words of my mouth:

||And thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.

For rI desired mercy, and rsnot sacrifice;

And tthe knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

But they ||like men uhave transgressed the covenant:

There vhave they dealt treacherously against me.

wGilead is a city of them that work iniquity,

And is ||polluted with blood.

And as ytroops of robbers wait for a man,

zSo athe company of priests murder in the way by consent:

For dthey commit ||lewdness.

10  I have seen ean horrible thing in the house of Israel:

fThere is the whoredom of Ephraim, fIsrael is defiled.

11  Also, O Judah, ghe hath set an harvest for thee,

hWhen I returned the captivity of my people.
