(Scripture in Black, My Comments in Purple, Other Comments in Blue)

Israel, as a child, called out of Egypt in similitude of our Lord, as a child, returning therefrom But Ephraim turns away from the Lord.

1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him,
and called my son out of Egypt.

2 As they called them, so they went from them:
they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.

3 I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms;
but they knew not that I healed them.

4 I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love:
and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws,
and I laid meat unto them.

5 He shall not return into the land of Egypt,
but the Assyrian shall be his king,
because they refused to return.

6 And the sword shall abide on his cities,
and shall consume his branches, and devour them,
because of their own counsels.

7 And my people are bent to backsliding from me:
though they called them to the most High,
none at all would exalt him.

8 How shall I give thee up, Ephraim?
how shall I deliver thee, Israel?
how shall I make thee as Admah?
how shall I set thee as Zeboim?
mine heart is turned within me,
my repentings are kindled together.

9 I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger,
I will not return to destroy Ephraim:
for I am God, and not man;
the Holy One in the midst of thee:
and I will not enter into the city.

10 They shall walk after the LORD:
he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar,
then the children shall tremble from the west.

11 They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt,
and as a dove out of the land of Assyria:
and I will place them in their houses,
saith the LORD.

12 Ephraim compasseth me about with lies,
and the house of Israel with deceit:
but Judah yet ruleth with God,
and is faithful with the saints.
