I.   Repentance and Return to God  vs. 1-3
     “[1] Return, O Israel, to the LORD your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity. [2] Take words with you and return to the LORD. Say to Him, “Take away all iniquity and receive us graciously, that we may present the fruit of our lips. [3] Assyria will not save us, we will not ride on horses; nor will we say again, ‘Our god,’ to the work of our hands; for in You the orphan finds mercy.””

1 John 1:9;  Chronicles 7:14

II.  Renewal of Divine Support  vs. 4-7
     “[4] I will heal their apostasy, I will love them freely, for My anger has turned away from them. [5] I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like the lily, and he will take root like the cedars of Lebanon. [6] His shoots will sprout, and his beauty will be like the olive tree and his fragrance like the cedars of Lebanon. [7] Those who live in his shadow will again raise grain, and they will blossom like the vine. His renown will be like the wine of Lebanon.”

John 14:21, 23; Mark 3:5-6; Romans 12:21

III. Recognition of Divine Authority  vs. 8-9
     “[8] O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols? It is I who answer and look after you. I am like a luxuriant cypress; from Me comes your fruit. [9] Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, and the righteous will walk in them, but transgressors will stumble in them.”
