Chapter 6

1

 'Come, and we turn back unto Jehovah, For He hath torn, and He doth heal us, He doth smite, and He bindeth us up. 

2

 He doth revive us after two days, In the third day He doth raise us up, And we live before Him. 

3

 And we know -- we pursue to know Jehovah, As the dawn prepared is His going forth, And He cometh in as a shower to us, As gathered rain -- sprinkling earth.' 

4

 What do I do to thee, O Ephraim? What do I do to thee, O Judah? Your goodness [is] as a cloud of the morning, And as dew rising early -- going. 

5

 Therefore I have hewed by prophets, I have slain them by sayings of My mouth, And My judgments to the light goeth forth. 

6

 For kindness I desired, and not sacrifice, And a knowledge of God above burnt-offerings. 

7

 And they, as Adam, transgressed a covenant, There they dealt treacherously against me. 

8

 Gilead [is] a city of workers of iniquity, Slippery from blood. 

9

 And as bands do wait for a man, A company of priests do murder -- the way to Shechem, For wickedness they have done. 

10

 In the house of Israel I have seen a horrible thing, There [is] the whoredom of Ephraim -- defiled is Israel. 

11

 Also, O Judah, appointed is a harvest to thee, In My turning back [to] the captivity of My people!
