Hosea 11:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 11

The Disappointment of a Parent

[a]When Israel was a child I loved him,
    out of Egypt[b] I called my son.
The more I called them,
    the farther they went from me,
Sacrificing to the Baals
    and burning incense to idols.
Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk,
    who took them in my arms;
    but they did not know that I cared for them.

Footnotes:

  1. 11:1–3 After the image of husband-wife (chaps. 1–3), Hosea uses the image of parent-child (Ex 4:22; Is 1:2; Jer 3:19).
  2. 11:1 Out of Egypt: Hosea dates the real beginning of Israel from the time of the exodus. Mt 2:15 applies this text to the return of Jesus from Egypt.
