1 Let us go, and return to the Lord our God; for he has torn, and will heal us; he will smite, and bind us up. 2 After two days he will heal us: in the third day we shall arise, and live before him, and shall know [him]: 3 let us follow on to know the Lord: we shall find him ready as the morning, and he will come to us as the early and latter rain to the earth. 4 What shall I do unto thee, Ephraim? What shall I do to thee, Juda? whereas your mercy is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew that goes away. 5 Therefore have I mown down your prophets; I have slain them with the word of my mouth: and my judgment shall go forth as the light. 6 For I will [have] mercy rather than sacrifice, and the knowledge of God rather than whole-burnt-offerings. 7 But they are as a man transgressing a covenant: 8 there the city Galaad despised me, working vanity, troubling water. 9 And thy strength [is that] of a robber: the priests have hid the way, they have murdered [the people of] Sicima; for they have wrought iniquity in the house of Israel. 10 I have seen horrible [things] there, [even] the fornication of Ephraim: Israel and Juda are defiled; 11 begin to gather grapes for thyself, when I turn the captivity of my people, when I have healed Israel. ΠΟΡΕΥΘΩΜΕΝ καὶ ἐπιστρέψωμεν πρὸς Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν ἡμῶν, ὅτι αὐτὸς ἥρπακε καὶ ἰάσεται ἡμᾶς, πατάξει καὶ μοτώσει ἡμᾶς· 2 ὑγιάσει ἡμᾶς μετὰ δύο ἡμέρας, ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ ἐξαναστησόμεθα καὶ ζησόμεθα ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ 3 καὶ γνωσόμεθα· διώξωμεν τοῦ γνῶναι τὸν Κύριον, ὡς ὄρθρον ἕτοιμον εὑρήσομεν αὐτόν, καὶ ἥξει ὡς ὑετὸς ἡμῖν πρώϊμος καὶ ὄψιμος γῇ. 4 τί σοι ποιήσω ᾿Εφραίμ; τί σοι ποιήσω ᾿Ιούδα; τὸ δὲ ἔλεος ὑμῶν ὡς νεφέλη πρωϊνὴ καὶ ὡς δρόσος ὀρθρινὴ πορευομένη. - 5 Διὰ τοῦτο ἀπεθέρισα τοὺς προφήτας ὑμῶν, ἀπέκτεινα αὐτοὺς ἐν ῥήματι στόματός μου, καὶ τὸ κρίμα μου ὡς φῶς ἐξελεύσεται· 6 διότι ἔλεος θέλω καὶ οὐ θυσίαν καὶ ἐπίγνωσιν Θεοῦ ἢ ὁλοκαυτώματα. 7 αὐτοὶ δέ εἰσιν ὡς ἄνθρωπος παραβαίνων διαθήκην· ἐκεῖ κατεφρόνησέ μου 8 Γαλαὰδ πόλις ἐργαζομένη μάταια, ταράσσουσα ὕδωρ, 9 καὶ ἡ ἰσχύς σου ἀνδρὸς πειρατοῦ· ἔκρυψαν ἱερεῖς ὁδόν, ἐφόνευσαν Σίκιμα, ὅτι ἀνομίαν ἐποίησαν. 10 ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ εἶδον φρικώδη ἐκεῖ, πορνείαν τοῦ ᾿Εφραίμ· ἐμιάνθη ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιούδα. 11 ἄρχου τρυγᾶν σεαυτῷ ἐν τῷ ἐπιστρέφειν με τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν τοῦ λαοῦ μου ἐν τῷ ἰάσασθαί με τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ.
