Hosea 11:1-3 World English Bible (WEB)

11 “When Israel was a child, then I loved him,

    and called my son out of Egypt.
They called to them, so they went from them.
    They sacrificed to the Baals,
    and burned incense to engraved images.
Yet I taught Ephraim to walk.
    I took them by his arms;
    but they didn’t know that I healed them.

Hosea 11:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

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]
They sacrificed to the Baals
    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.
