Hosea 11

The ingratitude of Israel unto God for his benefits.

Hosea 11:1 When Israell was younge, I loued him: & called my sonne oute of the lande of Egypt. Hosea 11:2 But þe more they were called, þe more they went backe, offringe vnto Idols of Baal, & censynge Images. Hosea 11:3 I lerned Ephraim to go, & bare them in myne armes, but they regarded not me, þt wolde haue helped them. Hosea 11:4 I led them with coardes of frendshyppe, and with bandes of loue. I was euen he, þt layed the yocke vpon their neckes. I gaue their foder my self

His judgment.

Hosea 11:5 that they shulde not go agayne into Egypt. And nowe is Assur theyr kynge. For they wolde not turne vnto me. Hosea 11:6 Therfore shall the swearde begynne in their cyties, the stoare þt they haue layed vp, shalbe destroyed and eaten: and þt because of their awne ymaginacyons. Hosea 11:7 And my people shall stonde in a doubte whether to torne them, for when the prophetes called them to the most hiest, not one yet wolde gyue him his glory.

God's mercy toward them.

Hosea 11:8 What greate thynges haue I geuen the, O Ephraim? howe faythfully haue I defended the, O Israel? haue I dealt with the as with Adama? or haue I intreated þe lyke Seboim? No, my hert is other wise mynded. Yee, my mercy is to feruent: Hosea 11:9 therfore haue I not turned me to destroye Ephraim in my wrothfull displeasure. For I am God and no man, I am euen that holy one in the middest of the, though I came not within the cytie. Hosea 11:10 The Lorde roareth lyke a lyon, that they maye folowe hym: yee, as a lyon roareth he, þt they maye be afrayed lyke the chyldren of the see: Hosea 11:11 þt they maye be scatred awaye from Egypt, as men scarre byrdes: & frayed awaye (as doues vse to be) from the Assyrians lande: and that because I wolde haue them tary at home, sayeth þe Lorde. Hosea 11:12 But Ephraim goeth aboute me with lyes, and þe house of Israell dissembleth. Only Iuda holdeth hym with God, and with the true holy thynges.
