A Call to Repentance
Israel’s Insincere Repentance

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:1 - Come, and let us return to the LORD;
For He has torn, but He will heal us;
He has stricken, but He will bind us up.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:2 - After two days He will revive us;
On the third day He will raise us up,
That we may live in His sight.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 6:3 - Let us know,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD.
His going forth is established as the morning;
He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
Impenitence of Israel and Judah

I have slain them by the words of My mouth;

And the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

So the company of priests murder on the way to Shechem;
Surely they commit lewdness.

There is the harlotry of Ephraim;
Israel is defiled.

When I return the captives of My people.
