My Son Called Out

11 “When Israel was a youth I loved him,
and out of Egypt I called My son.[a]
They called out to them
but they departed from their presence.
They kept sacrificing to the Baalim
    and burning incense up to idols.
Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk.
I took them on My arms.
But they never acknowledged
    that I had healed them.
