Hosea 11:8-11 Expanded Bible (EXB)

“·Israel [L Ephraim; 4:17], how can I give you up?
    How can I ·give you away [hand you over], Israel?
·I don’t want to [L How can I…?] make you like Admah
    or treat you like Zeboiim [C two cities destroyed together with Sodom and Gomorrah; Gen. 19:24–25; Deut. 4:25–31].
My heart ·beats for you [or has changed within me; or is torn within me],
    and my ·love for you stirs up my pity [compassion is aroused/stirred up/kindled].
I won’t ·punish you in my [unleash my burning] anger,
    and I won’t destroy ·Israel [L Ephraim; 4:17] again.
I am God and not a human;
    I am the Holy One, and I am among you.
    I will not come against ·you in anger [you with terror; or your cities].
10 They will ·go after [follow] the Lord,
    and he will roar like a lion.
When he roars,
    his children will ·hurry [L come trembling] to him from the west [C God’s people would return not only from Babylon and Assyria in the east but from every direction].
11 They will come ·swiftly [or trembling]
    like birds from Egypt
    and like doves from Assyria.
I will settle them again in their homes,”
    says the Lord.
