Chapter 6

1

 

 Come, and let us return to Yahweh; for he has torn, and he will heal us; he has struck, and he will bind us up. 

 

 


2

 

 After two days will he revive us: on the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live before him. 

 

 


3

 

 Let us know, let us follow on to know Yahweh: his going forth is sure as the morning; and he will come to us as the rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth. 

 

 


4

 

 Ephraim, what shall I do to you? Judah, what shall I do to you? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the dew that goes early away. 

 

 


5

 

 Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and your judgments are [as] the light that goes forth. 

 

 


6

 

 For I desire goodness, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. 

 

 


7

 

 But they like Adam have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me. 

 

 


8

 

 Gilead is a city of those who work iniquity; it is stained with blood. 

 

 


9

 

 As troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way toward Shechem; yes, they have committed lewdness. 

 

 


10

 

 In the house of Israel I have seen a horrible thing: there prostitution is [found] in Ephraim, Israel is defiled. 

 

 


11

 

 Also, Judah, there is a harvest appointed for you, when I bring back the captivity of my people.
