Bible: Hos 6:1-3

Superficial Repentance Breeds False Assurance of God’s Forgivene

6:1Come on! Let’s return to the Lord!

He himself has torn us to pieces,

but he will heal us!

He has injured 1  us,

but he will bandage our wounds!

6:2 He will restore 2  us in a very short time; 3 

he will heal us in a little while, 4 

so that we may live in his presence.

6:3 So let us acknowledge him! 5 

Let us seek 6  to acknowledge 7  the Lord!

He will come to our rescue as certainly as the appearance of the dawn,

as certainly as the winter rain comes,

as certainly as the spring rain that waters the land.”
