Hosea 6 Beibl William Morgan (BWM)

Deuwch, a dychwelwn at yr Arglwydd: canys efe a’n drylliodd, ac efe a’n hiachâ ni; efe a drawodd, ac efe a’n meddyginiaetha ni. Efe a’n bywha ni ar ôl deuddydd, a’r trydydd dydd y cyfyd ni i fyny, a byddwn fyw ger ei fron ef. Yna yr adnabyddwn, os dilynwn adnabod yr Arglwydd: ei fynediad a ddarperir fel y bore; ac efe a ddaw fel glaw atom, fel y diweddar law a’r cynnar law i’r ddaear.

Beth a wnaf i ti, Effraim? beth a wnaf i ti, Jwda? eich mwynder sydd yn ymado fel cwmwl y bore, ac fel gwlith boreol. Am hynny y trewais hwynt trwy y proffwydi; lleddais hwynt â geiriau fy ngenau: a’th farnedigaethau sydd fel goleuni yn myned allan. Canys ewyllysiais drugaredd, ac nid aberth; a gwybodaeth o Dduw, yn fwy na phoethoffrymau. A’r rhai hyn, fel dynion, a dorasant y cyfamod: yno y buant anffyddlon i’m herbyn. Dinas gweithredwyr anwiredd yw Gilead, wedi ei halogi gan waed. Ac fel y mae mintai o ladron yn disgwyl gŵr, felly y mae cynulleidfa yr offeiriaid yn lladd ar y ffordd yn gytûn: canys gwnânt ysgelerder. 10 Gwelais yn nhŷ Israel beth erchyll: yno y mae godineb Effraim; halogwyd Israel. 11 Gosododd hefyd gynhaeaf i tithau, Jwda, a mi yn dychwelyd caethiwed fy mhobl.

Hosea 6 New International Version (NIV)

Israel Unrepentant

“Come, let us return to the Lord.
He has torn us to pieces
    but he will heal us;
he has injured us
    but he will bind up our wounds.
After two days he will revive us;
    on the third day he will restore us,
    that we may live in his presence.
Let us acknowledge the Lord;
    let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
    he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
    like the spring rains that water the earth.

“What can I do with you, Ephraim?
    What can I do with you, Judah?
Your love is like the morning mist,
    like the early dew that disappears.
Therefore I cut you in pieces with my prophets,
    I killed you with the words of my mouth
    then my judgments go forth like the sun.[a]
For I desire mercy, not sacrifice,
    and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.
As at Adam,[b] they have broken the covenant;
    they were unfaithful to me there.
Gilead is a city of evildoers,
    stained with footprints of blood.
As marauders lie in ambush for a victim,
    so do bands of priests;
they murder on the road to Shechem,
    carrying out their wicked schemes.
10 I have seen a horrible thing in Israel:
    There Ephraim is given to prostitution,
    Israel is defiled.

11 “Also for you, Judah,
    a harvest is appointed.

“Whenever I would restore the fortunes of my people,
