Hosea 11:3-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
3 Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk,
who took them in my arms;
but they did not know that I cared for them.
4 I drew them with human cords,
with bands of love;
I fostered them like those
who raise an infant to their cheeks;
I bent down to feed them.
