Young's Literal Translation

Hosea 11

The ingratitude of Israel unto God for his benefits.

Hosea 11:1 Because Israel [is] a youth, and I love him, Out of Egypt I have called for My Son. Hosea 11:2 They have called to them rightly, They have gone from before them, To lords they do sacrifice, And to graven images they make perfume. Hosea 11:3 And I have caused Ephraim to go on foot, Taking them by their arms, And they have not known that I strengthened them. Hosea 11:4 With cords of man I do draw them, With thick cords of love, And I am to them as a raiser up of a yoke on their jaws, And I incline unto him—I feed [him].

His judgment.

Hosea 11:5 He turneth not back unto the land of Egypt, And Asshur—he [is] his king, For they have refused to return. Hosea 11:6 Grievous hath been the sword in his cities, And it hath ended his bars, and consumed—from their own counsels. Hosea 11:7 And My people are hanging in suspense, about My returning, And unto the Most High they do call, Together they exalt not.

God's mercy toward them.

Hosea 11:8 How do I give thee up, O Ephraim? Do I deliver thee up, O Israel? How do I make thee as Admah? Do I set thee as Zeboim? Turned in Me is My heart, kindled together have been My repentings. Hosea 11:9 I do not the fierceness of My anger, I turn not back to destroy Ephraim, For God I [am], and not a man. In thy midst the Holy One, and I enter not in enmity, Hosea 11:10 After Jehovah they go—as a lion He roareth, When He doth roar, then tremble do the sons from the west. Hosea 11:11 They tremble as a sparrow out of Egypt, And as a dove out of the land of Asshur, And I have caused them to dwell in their own houses, An affirmation of Jehovah. Hosea 11:12 Compassed Me with feigning hath Ephraim, And with deceit the house of Israel. And Judah again is ruling with God, And with the Holy Ones [is] faithful!
