Hosea 11:1-3 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

God’s Compassion Despite Israel’s Ingratitude

11 When Israel was a child, I loved him,
    and out of Egypt I called my son.
The more I[a] called them,
    the more they went from me;[b]
they kept sacrificing to the Ba′als,
    and burning incense to idols.

Yet it was I who taught E′phraim to walk,
    I took them up in my[c] arms;
    but they did not know that I healed them.
