Bible: Hosea 14:2-3

14:2 Return to the Lord and repent! 1 

Say to him: “Completely 2  forgive our iniquity;

accept 3  our penitential prayer, 4 

that we may offer the praise of our lips as sacrificial bulls. 5 

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! 6
