11:1 When Israel [H3478] [was] a child [H5288] , then I loved [H157] him, and called [H7121] my son [H1121] out of Egypt [H4714] .
11:2 [As] they called [H7121] them, so they went [H1980] from them [H6440] : they sacrificed [H2076] unto Baalim [H1168] , and burned incense [H6999] to graven images [H6456] .
11:3 I taught [H8637] Ephraim [H669] also to go [H8637] , taking [H3947] them by their arms [H2220] ; but they knew [H3045] not that I healed [H7495] them.
11:4 I drew [H4900] them with cords [H2256] of a man [H120] , with bands [H5688] of love [H160] : and I was to them as they that take off [H7311] the yoke [H5923] on their jaws [H3895] , and I laid [H5186] meat [H398] unto them.(take off: Heb. lift up)
11:5 He shall not return [H7725] into the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] , but the Assyrian [H804] shall be his king [H4428] , because they refused [H3985] to return [H7725] .
11:6 And the sword [H2719] shall abide [H2342] on his cities [H5892] , and shall consume [H3615] his branches [H905] , and devour [H398] [them], because of their own counsels [H4156] .
11:7 And my people [H5971] are bent [H8511] to backsliding [H4878] from me: though they called [H7121] them to the most High [H5920] , none at all [H3162] would exalt [H7311] [him].(none: Heb. together they exalted not)
11:8 How shall I give thee up [H5414] , Ephraim [H669] ? [how] shall I deliver [H4042] thee, Israel [H3478] ? how shall I make [H5414] thee as Admah [H126] ? [how] shall I set [H7760] thee as Zeboim [H6636] ? mine heart [H3820] is turned [H2015] within me, my repentings [H5150] are kindled [H3648] together [H3162] .
11:9 I will not execute [H6213] the fierceness [H2740] of mine anger [H639] , I will not return [H7725] to destroy [H7843] Ephraim [H669] : for I [am] God [H410] , and not man [H376] ; the Holy One [H6918] in the midst [H7130] of thee: and I will not enter [H935] into the city [H5892] .
11:10 They shall walk [H3212] after [H310] the LORD [H3068] : he shall roar [H7580] like a lion [H738] : when he shall roar [H7580] , then the children [H1121] shall tremble [H2729] from the west [H3220] .
11:11 They shall tremble [H2729] as a bird [H6833] out of Egypt [H4714] , and as a dove [H3123] out of the land [H776] of Assyria [H804] : and I will place [H3427] them in their houses [H1004] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
11:12 Ephraim [H669] compasseth [H5437] me about with lies [H3585] , and the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] with deceit [H4820] : but Judah [H3063] yet ruleth [H7300] with God [H410] , and is faithful [H539] with the saints [H6918] .(saints: or, most holy)
