Hosea 14

14:1 O Israel, return to the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen
 by thy iniquity.
14:2 Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say to him, Take
 away all iniquity, and receive [us] graciously: so will we
 render the calves of our lips.
14:3 Ashur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses:
 neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, [Ye
 are] our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.
14:4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for
 my anger is turned away from him.
14:5 I will be as the dew to Israel: he shall grow as the lily
 and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
14:6 His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the
 olive-tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
14:7 They that dwell under his shade shall return; they shall
 revive [as] the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent of it
 [shall be] as the wine of Lebanon.
14:8 Ephraim [shall say], What have I to do any more with idols?
 I have heard [him], and observed him: I [am] like a green
 fir-tree. From me is thy fruit found.
14:9 Who [is] wise, and he shall understand these [things]?
 prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD [are]
 right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors
 shall fall in them.
