English Standard Version
A Plea to Return to the Lord
14 (A)Return, O Israel, to the Lord your God,
for (B)you have stumbled because of your iniquity.
2 Take with you words
and return to the Lord;
say to him,
“Take away all iniquity;
accept (C)what is good,
and we will pay with bulls
(D)the vows[a] of our lips.
3 (E)Assyria shall not save us;
(F)we will not ride on horses;
and (G)we will say no more, ‘Our God,’
to the work of our hands.
(H)In you the orphan finds mercy.”
- Hosea 14:2 Septuagint, Syriac pay the fruit
