    God's Fatherly Love For Israel: Hosea Eleven:1-12

    Hosea Eleven

    King James Bible Par ▾

    Out of Egypt I called my Son

    Matthew 2:13-15)


    1When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.


    2As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.


    3I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.


    4I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.


    5He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return.


    6And the sword shall abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches, and devour them, because of their own counsels.


    7And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt him.


    God's Mercy Toward Israel

    8How shall I give thee up, Ephraim? how shall I deliver thee, Israel? how shall I make thee as Admah? how shall I set thee as Zeboim? mine heart is turned within me, my repentings are kindled together.


    9I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city.


    10They shall walk after the LORD: he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.


    11They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of Assyria: and I will place them in their houses, saith the LORD.


    12Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.


    Hosea Twelve

    King James Bible Par ▾
    A Reproof of Ephraim, Judah, Jacob

    1Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind: he daily increaseth lies and desolation; and they do make a covenant with the Assyrians, and oil is carried into Egypt.


    2The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him.


    3He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God:


    4Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spake with us;


    5Even the LORD God of hosts; the LORD is his memorial.


    6Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually.


    7He is a merchant, the balances of deceit are in his hand: he loveth to oppress.


    8And Ephraim said, Yet I am become rich, I have found me out substance: in all my labours they shall find none iniquity in me that were sin.


    9And I that am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast.


    10I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.


    11Is there iniquity in Gilead? surely they are vanity: they sacrifice bullocks in Gilgal; yea, their altars are as heaps in the furrows of the fields.


    12And Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and for a wife he kept sheep.


    13And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.


    14Ephraim provoked him to anger most bitterly: therefore shall he leave his blood upon him, and his reproach shall his Lord return unto him.


    Love always, Walter and Debbie
