Hosea Chapter 14 הוֹשֵׁעַ
א תֶּאְשַׁם, שֹׁמְרוֹן, כִּי מָרְתָה, בֵּאלֹהֶיהָ; בַּחֶרֶב יִפֹּלוּ–עֹלְלֵיהֶם יְרֻטָּשׁוּ, וְהָרִיּוֹתָיו יְבֻקָּעוּ. {פ} 1 Samaria shall bear her guilt, for she hath rebelled against her God; they shall fall by the sword; their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up. {P}
ב שׁוּבָה, יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַד, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ: כִּי כָשַׁלְתָּ, בַּעֲו‍ֹנֶךָ. 2 Return, O Israel, unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast stumbled in thine iniquity.
ג קְחוּ עִמָּכֶם דְּבָרִים, וְשׁוּבוּ אֶל-יְהוָה; אִמְרוּ אֵלָיו, כָּל-תִּשָּׂא עָו‍ֹן וְקַח-טוֹב, וּנְשַׁלְּמָה פָרִים, שְׂפָתֵינוּ. 3 Take with you words, and return unto the LORD; say unto Him: ‘Forgive all iniquity, and accept that which is good; so will we render for bullocks the offering of our lips.
ד אַשּׁוּר לֹא יוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ, עַל-סוּס לֹא נִרְכָּב, וְלֹא-נֹאמַר עוֹד אֱלֹהֵינוּ, לְמַעֲשֵׂה יָדֵינוּ–אֲשֶׁר-בְּךָ, יְרֻחַם יָתוֹם. 4 Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses; neither will we call any more the work of our hands our gods; for in Thee the fatherless findeth mercy.’
ה אֶרְפָּא, מְשׁוּבָתָם–אֹהֲבֵם, נְדָבָה: כִּי שָׁב אַפִּי, מִמֶּנּוּ. 5 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely; for Mine anger is turned away from him.
ו אֶהְיֶה כַטַּל לְיִשְׂרָאֵל, יִפְרַח כַּשּׁוֹשַׁנָּה; וְיַךְ שָׁרָשָׁיו, כַּלְּבָנוֹן. 6 I will be as the dew unto Israel; he shall blossom as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
ז יֵלְכוּ, יֹנְקוֹתָיו, וִיהִי כַזַּיִת, הוֹדוֹ; וְרֵיחַ לוֹ, כַּלְּבָנוֹן. 7 His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive-tree, and his fragrance as Lebanon.
ח יָשֻׁבוּ יֹשְׁבֵי בְצִלּוֹ, יְחַיּוּ דָגָן וְיִפְרְחוּ כַגָּפֶן; זִכְרוֹ, כְּיֵין לְבָנוֹן. 8 They that dwell under his shadow shall again make corn to grow, and shall blossom as the vine; the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.
ט אֶפְרַיִם, מַה-לִּי עוֹד לָעֲצַבִּים; אֲנִי עָנִיתִי וַאֲשׁוּרֶנּוּ, אֲנִי כִּבְרוֹשׁ רַעֲנָן–מִמֶּנִּי, פֶּרְיְךָ נִמְצָא. 9 Ephraim [shall say]: ‘What have I to do any more with idols?’ As for Me, I respond and look on him; I am like a leafy cypress-tree; from Me is thy fruit found.
י מִי חָכָם וְיָבֵן אֵלֶּה, נָבוֹן וְיֵדָעֵם: כִּי-יְשָׁרִים דַּרְכֵי יְהוָה, וְצַדִּקִים יֵלְכוּ בָם, וּפֹשְׁעִים, יִכָּשְׁלוּ בָם. {ש} 10 Whoso is wise, let him understand these things, whoso is prudent, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, and the just do walk in them; but transgressors do stumble therein. {P}

Comment: This is very modern text:  E.g. Think Samarian to day-  how much good Iisrael   did plan to their ownPpalestinians for to integrate  them to a functional  prosperous modern state, but instead they  (  a   dominant part of them)  rebelled and  wanted to make  some kind of  lethal intifada and kill,l assasinate in darkness  and by   two-faced way ,  everywhere ,   Israelians of all ages- babies, children, youth, adults, aged ones-  They caused  Israel to response  defensively- All these happenings, the  responses of Israel,  now are still defensive strategy of Israel against all kind of local assassins. IF  it happens that Syrians  and Ppalestinians begin  to choos the wsay of peace in daily life-  surelys all the heavens , and the aighteous nations of Abraham  do ratify the peace.  The war of  Levant  is huge sore, a deadly sickness of the whole Globe. All the  Righteous Nations togethes are now  trying to make peace to Levant- but  the inhabitants of Levant have to like also   the normal  life on earth and not assasianations and  bloody war.
