Hosea Chapter 11 הוֹשֵׁעַ

א  כִּי נַעַר יִשְׂרָאֵל, וָאֹהֲבֵהוּ; וּמִמִּצְרַיִם, קָרָאתִי לִבְנִי. 1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and out of Egypt I called My son.
ב  קָרְאוּ, לָהֶם; כֵּן, הָלְכוּ מִפְּנֵיהֶם--לַבְּעָלִים יְזַבֵּחוּ, וְלַפְּסִלִים יְקַטֵּרוּן. 2 The more they called them, the more they went from them; they sacrificed unto the Baalim, and offered to graven images.
ג  וְאָנֹכִי תִרְגַּלְתִּי לְאֶפְרַיִם, קָחָם עַל-זְרוֹעֹתָיו; וְלֹא יָדְעוּ, כִּי רְפָאתִים. 3 And I, I taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.
ד  בְּחַבְלֵי אָדָם אֶמְשְׁכֵם בַּעֲבֹתוֹת אַהֲבָה, וָאֶהְיֶה לָהֶם כִּמְרִימֵי עֹל עַל לְחֵיהֶם; וְאַט אֵלָיו, אוֹכִיל. 4 I 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 fed them gently.
ה  לֹא יָשׁוּב אֶל-אֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, וְאַשּׁוּר הוּא מַלְכּוֹ:  כִּי מֵאֲנוּ, לָשׁוּב. 5 He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return.
ו  וְחָלָה חֶרֶב בְּעָרָיו, וְכִלְּתָה בַדָּיו וְאָכָלָה--מִמֹּעֲצוֹתֵיהֶם. 6 And the sword shall fall upon his cities, and shall consume his bars, and devour them, because of their own counsels.
ז  וְעַמִּי תְלוּאִים, לִמְשׁוּבָתִי; וְאֶל-עַל, יִקְרָאֻהוּ--יַחַד, לֹא יְרוֹמֵם. 7 And My people are in suspense about returning to Me; and though they call them upwards, none at all will lift himself up.
ח  אֵיךְ אֶתֶּנְךָ אֶפְרַיִם, אֲמַגֶּנְךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל--אֵיךְ אֶתֶּנְךָ כְאַדְמָה, אֲשִׂימְךָ כִּצְבֹאיִם; נֶהְפַּךְ עָלַי לִבִּי, יַחַד נִכְמְרוּ נִחוּמָי. 8 How shall I give thee up, Ephraim? How shall I surrender thee, Israel? How shall I make thee as Admah? How shall I set thee as Zeboim? My heart is turned within Me, My compassions are kindled together.
ט  לֹא אֶעֱשֶׂה חֲרוֹן אַפִּי, לֹא אָשׁוּב לְשַׁחֵת אֶפְרָיִם:  כִּי אֵל אָנֹכִי, וְלֹא-אִישׁ--בְּקִרְבְּךָ קָדוֹשׁ, וְלֹא אָבוֹא בְּעִיר. 9 I 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 come in fury.
י  אַחֲרֵי יְהוָה יֵלְכוּ, כְּאַרְיֵה יִשְׁאָג:  כִּי-הוּא יִשְׁאַג, וְיֶחֶרְדוּ בָנִים מִיָּם. 10 They shall walk after the LORD, who shall roar like a lion; for He shall roar, and the children shall come trembling from the west.
יא  יֶחֶרְדוּ כְצִפּוֹר מִמִּצְרַיִם, וּכְיוֹנָה מֵאֶרֶץ אַשּׁוּר; וְהוֹשַׁבְתִּים עַל-בָּתֵּיהֶם, נְאֻם-יְהוָה.  {ס} 11 They shall come trembling as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of Assyria; and I will make them to dwell in their houses, saith the LORD. {S}
