The Response to God’s Rebuke

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:1 - “Come, let’s return to the LORD.
For He has torn us, but He will heal us;
He has [fn]wounded us, but He will bandage us.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:2 - “He will revive us after two days;
He will raise us up on the third day,
That we may live before Him.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:3 - “So let’s learn, let’s press on to know the LORD.
His appearance is as sure as the dawn;
And He will come to us like the rain,
As the spring rain waters the earth.”
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:4 - What shall I do with you, Ephraim?
What shall I do with you, Judah?
For your loyalty is like a morning cloud,
And like the dew which goes away early.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:5 - Therefore I have cut them in pieces by the prophets;
I have slain them by the words of My mouth;
And the judgments on you are like the light that [fn]shines.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:6 - For I [fn]desire loyalty rather than sacrifice,
And the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:7 - But like [fn]Adam they have violated the covenant;
There they have dealt treacherously with Me.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:8 - Gilead is a city of wrongdoers,
Tracked with bloody footprints.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:9 - And as a band of robbers lie in wait for a person,
So a band of priests murder on the way to Shechem;
Certainly they have committed an act of infamy.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:10 - In the house of Israel I have seen a horrible thing;
Ephraim’s infidelity is there, Israel has defiled itself.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:11 - Also, Judah, there is a harvest appointed for you,
When I restore the fortunes of My people.
