Hosea 11:1-3 New Century Version (NCV)

God’s Love for Israel

11 “When Israel was a child, I loved him,
    and I called my son out of Egypt.
But when I called the people of Israel,
    they went away from me.
They offered sacrifices to the Baals
    and burned incense to the idols.
It was I who taught Israel to walk,
    and I took them by the arms,
but they did not understand
    that I had healed them.

God’s Love for Israel

11 “When Israel was a child, I loved him,
    and out of Egypt I called my son.
But the more they were called,
    the more they went away from me.[a]

    and they burned incense to images.
It was I who taught Ephraim to walk,
    taking them by the arms;
but they did not realize
    it was I who healed them.
