Hosea 14 (WEBP)

[1] Israel, return to Yahweh your God; for you have fallen because of your sin.
[2] Take words with you, and return to Yahweh. Tell him, “Forgive all our sins, and accept that which is good; so we offer bulls as we vowed of our lips.
[3] Assyria can’t save us. We won’t ride on horses; neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, ‘Our gods!’ for in you the fatherless finds mercy.”
[4] “I will heal their waywardness. I will love them freely; for my anger is turned away from them.
[5] I will be like the dew to Israel. He will blossom like the lily, and send down his roots like Lebanon.
[6] His branches will spread, and his beauty will be like the olive tree, and his fragrance like Lebanon.
[7] Men will dwell in his shade. They will revive like the grain, and blossom like the vine. Their fragrance will be like the wine of Lebanon.
[8] Ephraim, what have I to do any more with idols? I answer, and will take care of him. I am like a green cypress tree; from me your fruit is found.”
[9] Who is wise, that he may understand these things? Who is prudent, that he may know them? For the ways of Yahweh are right, and the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.

Hosea 14 (KJVS)

[1] O Israel H3478, return H7725 (8798) unto the LORD H3068 thy God H430; for thou hast fallen H3782 (8804) by thine iniquity H5771.
[2] Take H3947 (8798) with you words H1697, and turn H7725 (8798) to the LORD H3068: say H559 (8798) unto him, Take away H5375 (8799) all iniquity H5771, and receive H3947 (8798) [us] graciously H2896: so will we render H7999 (8762) the calves H6499 of our lips H8193.
[3] Asshur H804 shall not save H3467 (8686) us; we will not ride H7392 (8799) upon horses H5483: neither will we say H559 (8799) any more to the work H4639 of our hands H3027, [Ye are] our gods H430: for in thee the fatherless H3490 findeth mercy H7355 (8792).
[4] I will heal H7495 (8799) their backsliding H4878, I will love H157 (8799) them freely H5071: for mine anger H639 is turned away H7725 (8804) from him.
[5] I will be as the dew H2919 unto Israel H3478: he shall grow H6524 (8799) as the lily H7799, and cast forth H5221 (8686) his roots H8328 as Lebanon H3844.
[6] His branches H3127 shall spread H3212 (8799), and his beauty H1935 shall be as the olive tree H2132, and his smell H7381 as Lebanon H3844.
[7] They that dwell H3427 (8802) under his shadow H6738 shall return H7725 (8799); they shall revive H2421 (8762) [as] the corn H1715, and grow H6524 (8799) as the vine H1612: the scent H2143 thereof [shall be] as the wine H3196 of Lebanon H3844.
[8] Ephraim H669 [shall say], What have I to do any more with idols H6091? I have heard H6030 (8804) [him], and observed H7789 (8799) him: I [am] like a green H7488 fir tree H1265. From me is thy fruit H6529 found H4672 (8738).
[9] Who [is] wise H2450, and he shall understand H995 (8799) these [things]? prudent H995 (8737), and he shall know H3045 (8799) them? for the ways H1870 of the LORD H3068 [are] right H3477, and the just H6662 shall walk H3212 (8799) in them: but the transgressors H6586 (8802) shall fall H3782 (8735) therein.

Young’s Literal Translation

Hosea 14 (YLT)

[1] Turn back, O Israel, unto Jehovah thy God, For thou hast stumbled by thine iniquity.
[2] Take with you words, and turn to Jehovah, Say ye unto Him: ‘Take away all iniquity, and give good, And we do render the fruit of our lips.
[3] Asshur doth not save us, on a horse we ride not, Nor do we say any more, Our God, to the work of our hands, For in Thee find mercy doth the fatherless.’
[4] I heal their backsliding, I love them freely, For turned back hath Mine anger from him.
[5] I am as dew to Israel, he flourisheth as a lily, And he striketh forth his roots as Lebanon.
[6] Go on do his sucklings, And his beauty is as an olive, And he hath fragrance as Lebanon.
[7] Return do the dwellers under his shadow, They revive as corn, and flourish as a vine, His memorial is as wine of Lebanon.
[8] O Ephraim, what to Me any more with idols? I-I afflicted, and I cause him to sing: ‘I am as a green fir-tree,’ From Me is thy fruit found.
[9] Who is wise, and doth understand these? Prudent, and knoweth them? For upright are the ways of Jehovah, And the righteous go on in them, And the transgressors stumble therein!
