Hosea 6:3 Common English Bible (CEB)

Let’s know, let’s press on to know the Lord;

        like the spring rains that give drink to the earth.”

Hosea 6:3 The Message (MSG)

Gangs of Priests Assaulting Worshipers

1-3 “Come on, let’s go back to God.
    He hurt us, but he’ll heal us.
He hit us hard,
    but he’ll put us right again.
In a couple of days we’ll feel better.
    By the third day he’ll have made us brand-new,
Alive and on our feet,
    fit to face him.
We’re ready to study God,
    eager for God-knowledge.
As sure as dawn breaks,
    so sure is his daily arrival.
He comes as rain comes,
    as spring rain refreshing the ground.”
