1 โอ อิสราเอลเอ๋ย จงกลับมาหาพระเยโฮวาห์พระเจ้าของเจ้า เจ้าสะดุดก็เพราะความชั่วช้าของเจ้า

2 จงนำถ้อยคำมาด้วยและกลับมาหาพระเยโฮวาห์ จงทูลพระองค์ว่า "ขอทรงโปรดยกความชั่วช้าทั้งหมด ขอทรงพระกรุณารับข้าพระองค์ทั้งหลาย ข้าพระองค์จึงจะนำลูกวัวแห่งริมฝีปากของข้าพระองค์ทั้งหลายมาถวาย

3 อัสซูรจะไม่ช่วยข้าพระองค์ทั้งหลาย ข้าพระองค์ทั้งหมดจะไม่ขี่ม้า ข้าพระองค์ทั้งหลายจะไม่กล่าวต่อไปว่า `พระของเราทั้งหลาย' แก่สิ่งที่มือของข้าพระองค์ได้สร้างขึ้น เพราะว่าในพระองค์ลูกกำพร้าพ่อพบพระกรุณาคุณ"

4 เราจะช่วยรักษาเขาให้หายจากการกลับสัตย์ของเขา เราจะรักเขาทั้งหลายด้วยเต็มใจ เพราะว่าความกริ้วของเราหันไปจากเขาแล้ว

5 เราจะเป็นเหมือนน้ำค้างแก่อิสราเอล เขาจะเบิกบานอย่างดอกบัว เขาจะหยั่งรากเหมือนเลบานอน

6 กิ่งก้านของเขาจะขยายออก เขาจะงามเหมือนต้นมะกอกเทศ และจะมีกลิ่นหอมเหมือนเลบานอน

7 เขาทั้งหลายที่อยู่ใต้ร่มเงาของเขาก็จะกลับมา เขาจะเจริญขึ้นเหมือนข้าว จะออกดอกเหมือนเถาองุ่น และจะมีกลิ่นเหมือนน้ำองุ่นแห่งเลบานอน

8 เอฟราอิมจะกล่าวว่า "เราต้องเกี่ยวข้องอะไรกับรูปเคารพต่อไป" เราเองได้ยินเขาและคอยดูเขา เราเป็นเหมือนต้นสนสามใบเขียวสด และผลของเจ้าก็ได้มาจากเรา

9 ผู้ใดที่ฉลาด ก็ให้เข้าใจสิ่งเหล่านี้เถิด ผู้ใดที่ช่างสังเกต ก็ให้เขารู้ เพราะว่าพระมรรคาของพระเยโฮวาห์ก็เที่ยงตรง ผู้ชอบธรรมทั้งหลายก็เดินในทางนี้ แต่ผู้ทรยศก็สะดุดอยู่ในทางนี้

Exploring the Meaning of Hosea 14      

By Helen Kennedy

At the outset of this chapter, Hosea says:

O Israel, return to the Lord your God,
For you have stumbled because of your iniquity;
Take words with you, And return to the Lord. (Hosea 14:1)

Plainly, the Lord exhorts us to return to Him when our wrongdoing has made us turn away.

"Take words with you," is an interesting phrase. It means that we should listen to our conscience - the voice within us that urges us to repent.

The next line,“Take away all iniquity; receive us graciously” shows very clearly what the Lord will do if the people ask Him.

Next, we have this: "For we will offer the sacrifices of our lips". We need to pay attention to detail, not only what we do but also how we speak.

“We will not ride on horses”, in verse (3), shows us to stop thinking we can escape by running away, using intelligent rationales to justify wrong acts.

“Nor will we say anymore to the work of our hands, ‘You are our gods,’” shows us to stop thinking that the things we do in the world and from ourselves are the only path to follow. Instead believe the truth that God is the only source of salvation.

“For in You the fatherless finds mercy” is saying that the Lord leaves no one without protection, and abandons no one.

“I will heal their backsliding,” in verse (4) means that God has the ability to keep people from returning to their old ways. “I will love them freely,” shows that He gives His love freely and without reservation.

“For My anger has turned away,” means the sinners’ perception of the Lord will clear and people will see He was never angry, only loving.

“I will be like the dew to Israel,” in verse (5) signifies that His instruction will be gentle like dew on the grass in the morning.

“Grow like the lily,” means the errant one will change, and will grow in purity like the lily;

“Lengthen his roots. . .” like roots growing in the ground the Lord work is in the dark and unseen.

“Branches shall spread” in verse (6) means good and truth will spread into the open and be seen, like the branches on a tree.

“Beauty shall be like an olive tree,” the beauty of the olive tree is in its bearing fruit.

“Fragrance like Lebanon,” like an aroma rising up, the ones who reform will be grateful;

“Those who dwell under his shadow shall return” in verse (7) means those in the dark of false thinking about salvation will be brought into full sunlight.

“They shall be revived like grain and grow like the vine,” explains that where good can flourish like grain in the sunlit field or be abundant like grapes on the vine.

“Their scent shall be like the wine of Lebanon“ means that this new life emanates a good scent, like the aroma of a good wine. In spiritual terms it means the person can now think through or understand why it is so important to live with good and truth joined together (Apocalypse Explained 730:15).

“What have I to do anymore with idols?” in verse (8) explains that as people are renewed they will no longer depend on their own idols of false thinking and reasoning.

“I have heard and observed Him” because they have heard the Lord speaking in His Word.

“I am like a green cypress tree; Your fruit is found in me” means that like trees that bear fruit, they will have perceptions that lead them to the life the Lord wants for them.

“Who is wise? Let him understand these things,” in verse 9 means those who accept the Lord will have wisdom to see the good paths they are to follow.

“Who is prudent? Let him know them,” explains that those being renewed will use the new thinking the Lord is giving them.

“For the ways of the Lord are right,” means they will understand that only the Lord knows the way to heaven.

“The righteous walk in them,” explains that those who are prudent will follow the Lord’s leading.

“But transgressors stumble in them,” signifies that wrongdoers will find the way to heaven difficult, and will stumble and fall away.
