Hosea 11 (WEBP)

[1] “When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.
[2] They called to them, so they went from them. They sacrificed to the Baals, and burned incense to engraved images.
[3] Yet I taught Ephraim to walk. I took them by their arms, but they didn’t know that I healed them.
[4] I drew them with cords of a man, with ties of love; and I was to them like those who lift up the yoke on their necks; and I bent down to him and I fed him.
[5] “They won’t return into the land of Egypt; but the Assyrian will be their king, because they refused to repent.
[6] The sword will fall on their cities, and will destroy the bars of their gates, and will put an end to their plans.
[7] My people are determined to turn from me. Though they call to the Most High, he certainly won’t exalt them.
[8] “How can I give you up, Ephraim? How can I hand you over, Israel? How can I make you like Admah? How can I make you like Zeboiim? My heart is turned within me, my compassion is aroused.
[9] I will not execute the fierceness of my anger. I will not return to destroy Ephraim, for I am God, and not man—the Holy One among you. I will not come in wrath.
[10] They will walk after Yahweh, who will roar like a lion; for he will roar, and the children will come trembling from the west.
[11] They will come trembling like a bird out of Egypt, and like a dove out of the land of Assyria; and I will settle them in their houses,” says Yahweh.
[12] Ephraim surrounds me with falsehood, and the house of Israel with deceit. Judah still strays from God, and is unfaithful to the Holy One.

Hosea 11 (KJVS)

[1] When Israel H3478 [was] a child H5288, then I loved H157 (8799) him, and called H7121 (8804) my son H1121 out of Egypt H4714.
[2] [As] they called H7121 (8804) them, so they went H1980 (8804) from them H6440: they sacrificed H2076 (8762) unto Baalim H1168, and burned incense H6999 (8762) to graven images H6456.
[3] I taught H8637 Ephraim H669 also to go H8637 (8809), taking H3947 (8800) them by their arms H2220; but they knew H3045 (8804) not that I healed H7495 (8804) them.
[4] I drew H4900 (8799) them with cords H2256 of a man H120, with bands H5688 of love H160: and I was to them as they that take off H7311 (8688) the yoke H5923 on their jaws H3895, and I laid H5186 (8686) meat H398 (8686) unto them.
[5] He shall not return H7725 (8799) into the land H776 of Egypt H4714, but the Assyrian H804 shall be his king H4428, because they refused H3985 (8765) to return H7725 (8800).
[6] And the sword H2719 shall abide H2342 (8804) on his cities H5892, and shall consume H3615 (8765) his branches H905, and devour H398 (8804) [them], because of their own counsels H4156.
[7] And my people H5971 are bent H8511 (8803) to backsliding H4878 from me: though they called H7121 (8799) them to the most High H5920, none at all H3162 would exalt H7311 (8787) [him].
[8] How shall I give thee up H5414 (8799), Ephraim H669? [how] shall I deliver H4042 (8762) thee, Israel H3478? how shall I make H5414 (8799) thee as Admah H126? [how] shall I set H7760 (8799) thee as Zeboim H6636? mine heart H3820 is turned H2015 (8738) within me, my repentings H5150 are kindled H3648 (8738) together H3162.
[9] I will not execute H6213 (8799) the fierceness H2740 of mine anger H639, I will not return H7725 (8799) to destroy H7843 (8763) Ephraim H669: for I [am] God H410, and not man H376; the Holy One H6918 in the midst H7130 of thee: and I will not enter H935 (8799) into the city H5892.
[10] They shall walk H3212 (8799) after H310 the LORD H3068: he shall roar H7580 (8799) like a lion H738: when he shall roar H7580 (8799), then the children H1121 shall tremble H2729 (8799) from the west H3220.
[11] They shall tremble H2729 (8799) as a bird H6833 out of Egypt H4714, and as a dove H3123 out of the land H776 of Assyria H804: and I will place H3427 (8689) them in their houses H1004, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[12] Ephraim H669 compasseth H5437 (8804) me about with lies H3585, and the house H1004 of Israel H3478 with deceit H4820: but Judah H3063 yet ruleth H7300 (8804) with God H410, and is faithful H539 (8737) with the saints H6918.

Young’s Literal Translation

Hosea 11 (YLT)

[1] Because Israel is a youth, and I love him, Out of Egypt I have called for My Son.
[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.
[3] And I have caused Ephraim to go on foot, Taking them by their arms, And they have not known that I strengthened them.
[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.
[5] He turneth not back unto the land of Egypt, And Asshur-he is his king, For they have refused to return.
[6] Grievous hath been the sword in his cities, And it hath ended his bars, and consumed-from their own counsels.
[7] And My people are hanging in suspense, about My returning, And unto the Most High they do call, Together they exalt not.
[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.
[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,
[10] After Jehovah they go-as a lion He roareth, When He doth roar, then tremble do the sons from the west.
[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.
[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!
