Hosea 11:1-3 New Life Version (NLV)
God’s Love for His Sinful People
11 “When Israel was a child, I loved him. And I called My son out of Egypt. 2 The more I called them, the more they went from Me. They kept giving gifts in worship to the Baals and burning special perfume to false gods. 3 Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk. I took them in My arms. But they did not know that I healed them.
