Bible: Hosea 12:2-4

12:2 The Lord also has a covenant lawsuit 1  against Judah;

he will punish Jacob according to his ways

and repay him according to his deeds.

Israel Must Return to the God of Jacob

12:3 In the womb he attacked his brother;

in his manly vigor he struggled 2  with God.

12:4 He struggled 3  with an angel and prevailed;

he wept and begged for his favor.

He found God 4  at Bethel, 5 

and there he spoke with him! 6
