Book of Hosea Chapter 6

HOSEA 6:1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

HOSEA 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

HOSEA 6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

HOSEA 6:4 O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.

HOSEA 6:5 Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.

HOSEA 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

HOSEA 6:7 But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.

HOSEA 6:8 Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity, and is polluted with blood.

HOSEA 6:9 And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness.

HOSEA 6:10 I have seen an horrible thing in the house of Israel: there is the whoredom of Ephraim, Israel is defiled.

HOSEA 6:11 Also, O Judah, he hath set an harvest for thee, when I returned the captivity of my people.

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
