Hosea 6:1-7 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

A Call to Yahweh

Come, let us return to Yahweh;
because it is he who has torn, and he will heal us;
he has struck us down and will bind us up.
    He will revive us after two days;
on the third day he will raise us up,
    that we may live in his presence.[a]
Let us know, let us press on to know Yahweh;
    his rising is sure like the dawn.
He will come like the showers to us,
    like the spring rain that waters the earth.
What will I do with you, O Ephraim?
    What will I do with you, O Judah?
Your love is like a morning cloud,
    like the dew that goes away early in the morning.
Therefore, I have hewn them by the prophets;
    I have killed them by the words of my mouth,
    and my judgment[b] goes forth like the light.
Because I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice,
    and knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
But like Adam, they transgressed the covenant;
    there they dealt faithlessly with me.
