Hosea 11:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The Lord’s Love for Israel

11 When Israel was a child, I loved him,
and out of Egypt I called My son.
The more they[a] called them,[b]
the more they[c] departed from Me.[d]
They kept sacrificing to the Baals
and burning offerings to idols.
It was I who taught Ephraim to walk,
taking them[e] in My arms,
but they never knew that I healed them.
