for you have fallen because of your sin.
and return to Yahweh.
Tell him, “Forgive all our sins,
and accept what is good,
so we offer our lips like bulls.
We will not ride on horses,
nor will we say any more
to the work of our hands, ‘Our gods!’
for in you the fatherless one finds mercy.”
I will love them freely,
for my anger is turned away from him.
He will blossom like the lily
and send down his roots like Lebanon.
and his beauty will be like the olive tree,
and his fragrance like Lebanon.
They will revive like the grain
and blossom like the vine.
Their fragrance will be like the wine of Lebanon.
I answer, and will take care of him.
I am like a green fir tree;
from me your fruit is found.
Who is prudent, that he may know them?
For the ways of Yahweh are right,
and the righteous walk in them,
but the rebellious stumble in them.
