Hosea 11:4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

I drew them with human cords,
    with bands of love;[a]
I fostered them like those
    who raise an infant to their cheeks;
    I bent down to feed them.

Footnotes:

  1. 11:4 I drew them…with bands of love: perhaps a reversal of the yoke imagery of the previous chapter, i.e., not forcing them like draft animals, but drawing them with kindness and affection.
