Hosea 14:4-8 New International Version

4  "I will heal their waywardness and love them freely, for my anger has turned away from them. 5  I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like a lily. Like a cedar of Lebanon he will send down his roots; 6  his young shoots will grow. His splendor will be like an olive tree, his fragrance like a cedar of Lebanon. 7  People will dwell again in his shade; they will flourish like the grain, they will blossom like the vine- Israel's fame will be like the wine of Lebanon.

8  Ephraim, what more have I[1] to do with idols? I will answer him and care for him. I am like a flourishing juniper; your fruitfulness comes from me."


[1] 14:8 Or Hebrew; Septuagint "What more has Ephraim"
