Hosea 11 ©
1 Israel's ingratitude to God for his benefits: 5 God's judgment upon them: 8 his mercy toward them. 12 Ephraim's falsehood, and Judah's fidelity.
cAs they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.
nHow shall I give thee up, Ephraim? how shall I deliver thee, Israel? how shall I make thee as oAdmah? how shall I set thee as Zeboim? pmine heart is turned within me, my repentings are kindled together.
Ephraim w*compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but xJudah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with 3the saints.
