He struck us, but he will bind our wounds.
2 He will revive us after two days.
On the third day he will raise us up,
And we will live before him.
3 We will know, we will earnestly seek to know Jehovah.
His going out is as certain as the dawn;
He will come to us like a pouring rain,
Like a spring rain that saturates the earth.”
4 “What should I do with you, Eʹphra·im?
What should I do with you, Judah?
For your loyal love is like the morning clouds,
Like the dew that quickly vanishes.
I will kill them with the words of my mouth.+
And the judgments on you will shine as the light.+
And in the knowledge of God, rather than in whole burnt offerings.+
There they have betrayed me.
9 The company of priests are like marauder bands lying in ambush for a man.
They murder on the road at Sheʹchem,+
For their conduct is shameful.
10 I have seen a horrible thing in the house of Israel.
