God's Love for His Rebellious People
11
The Lord says,
“When Israel was a child, I loved him
and called him out of Egypt as my son.
g 11.1: him, and called him...son; or him; from the time he left Egypt I have called him my son.
2 But the more I
h 11.2: One ancient translation I; Hebrew they.
called to him,
the more he turned away from me.
i 11.2: One ancient translation me; Hebrew them.
My people sacrificed to Baal;
they burned incense to idols.
3 Yet I was the one who taught Israel to walk.
I took my people up in my arms,
j 11.3: One ancient translation I...my arms; Hebrew He...his arms.
but they did not acknowledge that I took care of them.
4 I drew them to me with affection and love.
I picked them up and held them to my cheek;
I bent down to them and fed them.
k 11.4: Verse 4 in Hebrew is unclear.

5 “They refuse to return to me, and so they must return to Egypt, and Assyria will rule them. 6 War will sweep through their cities and break down the city gates. It will destroy my people because they do what they themselves think best. 7 They insist on turning away from me. They will cry out because of the yoke that is on them, but no one will lift it from them.
l 11.7: Verse 7 in Hebrew is unclear.

“How can I give you up, Israel?
How can I abandon you?
Could I ever destroy you as I did Admah,
or treat you as I did Zeboiim?
My heart will not let me do it!
My love for you is too strong.
9 I will not punish you in my anger;
I will not destroy Israel again.
For I am God and not a mere human being.
I, the Holy One, am with you.
I will not come to you in anger.
