Hosea 5:1-15
1. Hear this, O priests, Pay attention, O house of Israel, O household of the king, give ear! It is you who are called to judgment. For you have become a snare at Mizpah, and a net spread upon Tabor.
2. In their perversity they have sunk into wickedness, and I am rejected by them all.
3. I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from me; Now Ephraim has played the harlot, Israel is defiled.
4. Their deeds do not allow them to return to their God; For the spirit of harlotry is in them, and they do not recognize the LORD.
5. The arrogance of Israel bears witness against him; Ephraim stumbles in his guilt, and Judah stumbles with them.
6. With their flocks and their herds they shall go to seek the LORD, but they shall not find him; he has withdrawn himself from them.
7. They have been untrue to the LORD, for they have begotten illegitimate children; Now shall the new moon devour them together with their fields.
8. Blow the horn in Gibeah, the trumpet in Ramah! Sound the alarm in Beth-aven: "Look behind you, O Benjamin!"
9. Ephraim shall become a waste on the day of chastisement: Against the tribes of Israel I announce what is sure to be.
10. The princes of Judah have become like those that move a boundary line; Upon them I will pour out my wrath like water.
11. Is Ephraim maltreated, his rights violated? No, he has willingly gone after filth!
12. I am like a moth for Ephraim, like maggots for the house of Judah.
13. When Ephraim saw his infirmity, and Judah his sore, Ephraim went to Assyria, and Judah sent to the great king. But he cannot heal you nor take away your sore.
14. For I am like a lion to Ephraim, like a young lion to the house of Judah; It is I who rend the prey and depart, I carry it away and no one can save it from me.
15. I will go back to my place until they pay for their guilt and seek my presence.

Hosea 6:1-11
1. In their affliction, they shall look for me: "Come, let us return to the LORD, For it is he who has rent, but he will heal us; he has struck us, but he will bind our wounds.
2. He will revive us after two days; on the third day he will raise us up, to live in his presence.
3. Let us know, let us strive to know the LORD; as certain as the dawn is his coming, and his judgment shines forth like the light of day! He will come to us like the rain, like spring rain that waters the earth."
4. What can I do with you, Ephraim? What can I do with you, Judah? Your piety is like a morning cloud, like the dew that early passes away.
5. For this reason I smote them through the prophets, I slew them by the words of my mouth;
6. For it is love that I desire, not sacrifice, and knowledge of God rather than holocausts.

8. Gilead is a city of evildoers, tracked with blood.
9. As brigands ambush a man, a band of priests slay on the way to Shechem, committing monstrous crime.

11. For you also, O Judah, a harvest has been appointed.

Psalms 139:1-6
1. For the leader. A psalm of David. I LORD, you have probed me, you know me:
2. you know when I sit and stand; you understand my thoughts from afar.
3. My travels and my rest you mark; with all my ways you are familiar.
4. Even before a word is on my tongue, LORD, you know it all.
5. Behind and before you encircle me and rest your hand upon me.
6. Such knowledge is beyond me, far too lofty for me to reach.

Proverbs 29:19-19
19. By words no servant can be trained; for he understands what is said, but obeys not.

1 John 5:1-21
1. Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is begotten by God, and everyone who loves the father loves (also) the one begotten by him.
2. In this way we know that we love the children of God when we love God and obey his commandments.
3. For the love of God is this, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome,
4. for whoever is begotten by God conquers the world. And the victory that conquers the world is our faith.
5. Who (indeed) is the victor over the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6. This is the one who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by water alone, but by water and blood. The Spirit is the one that testifies, and the Spirit is truth.
7. So there are three that testify,
8. the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and the three are of one accord.
9. If we accept human testimony, the testimony of God is surely greater. Now the testimony of God is this, that he has testified on behalf of his Son.
10. Whoever believes in the Son of God has this testimony within himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar by not believing the testimony God has given about his Son.
11. And this is the testimony: God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12. Whoever possesses the Son has life; whoever does not possess the Son of God does not have life.
13. I write these things to you so that you may know that you have eternal life, you who believe in the name of the Son of God.
14. And we have this confidence in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
15. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, we know that what we have asked him for is ours.
16. If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly, he should pray to God and he will give him life. This is only for those whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin, about which I do not say that you should pray.
17. All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly.
18. We know that no one begotten by God sins; but the one begotten by God he protects, and the evil one cannot touch him.
19. We know that we belong to God, and the whole world is under the power of the evil one.
20. We also know that the Son of God has come and has given us discernment to know the one who is true. And we are in the one who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
21. Children, be on your guard against idols.
