Hosea 14:1-3 New International Version

Israel Entreated to Return to the LORD

14 1  Return, Israel, to the Lord your God. Your sins have been your downfall! 2  Take words with you and return to the Lord. Say to him: "Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips.[1] 3  Assyria cannot save us; we will not mount warhorses. We will never again say 'Our gods' to what our own hands have made, for in you the fatherless find compassion."


[1] 14:2 Or "offer our lips as sacrifices of bulls"
