Bible: Hos 14:1-3

Prophetic Call to Genuine Repentance

14:1 Return, O Israel, to the Lord your God,

for your sin has been your downfall! 1 

14:2 Return to the Lord and repent! 2 

Say to him: “Completely 3  forgive our iniquity;

accept 4  our penitential prayer, 5 

that we may offer the praise of our lips as sacrificial bulls. 6 

14:3 Assyria cannot save us;

we will not ride warhorses.

We will never again say, ‘Our gods

to what our own hands have made.

For only you will show compassion to Orphan Israel! 7
