Chapter 14

1

 

  O Israel, return unto Jehovah thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.  

 

 


2

 

  Take with you words, and turn to Jehovah; say unto him, Forgive all iniquity, and receive [us] graciously; so will we render the calves of our lips.  

 

 


3

 

  Assyria shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, [Thou art] our God; because in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.  

 

 


4

 

  I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely; for mine anger is turned away from him.  

 

 


5

 

  I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall blossom as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.  

 

 


6

 

  His shoots shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive-tree, and his smell as Lebanon.  

 

 


7

 

  They shall return and sit under his shadow; they shall revive [as] corn, and blossom as the vine: the renown thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.  

 

 


8

 

  Ephraim [shall say], What have I to do any more with idols? (I answer [him], and I will observe him.) I am like a green fir-tree. -- From me is thy fruit found.  

 

 


9

 

  Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? intelligent, and he shall know them? For the ways of Jehovah are right, and the just shall walk in them; but the transgressors shall fall therein.  

 

 


Joel 1
