Hosea 11:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Israel Has Forgotten the Lord

11 The Lord said, “I loved Israel when he was a child,
    and I called my son out of Egypt.
But the more I[a] called the Israelites,
    the more they left me.
The Israelites gave sacrifices to the false gods[b]
    and burned incense to the idols.

“But I was the one who taught Ephraim to walk.
    I took the Israelites in my arms.
I healed them,
    but they don’t know that.
