1Come, let us return to Yahweh. He has rent us and he wil heal us; he has struck us and he will bind upour wounds; 2after two days he wil revive us, on the third day he wil raise us up and we shal live in his presence. 3Let us know, let us strive to know Yahweh; that he will come is as certain as the dawn. He wil come tous like a shower, like the rain of springtime to the earth. 4What am I to do with you, Ephraim? What am I to do with you, Judah? For your love is like morningmist, like the dew that quickly disappears. 5This is why I have hacked them to pieces by means of the prophets, why I have kil ed them with wordsfrom my mouth, why my sentence wil blaze forth like the dawn- 6for faithful love is what pleases me, not sacrifice; knowledge of God, not burnt offerings. 7But they have broken the covenant at Adam, there they have betrayed me. 8Gilead is a city of evil-doers, ful of bloody footprints. 9Like so many robbers in ambush, a gang of priests commits murder on the road to Shechem- whatinfamous behaviour! 10At Bethel I have seen a horrible thing; there Ephraim plays the whore, Israel is befouled. 11For you too, Judah, a harvest is in store, when I restore my people's fortunes.
