Hosea 14:5-9

I will be like the dew to Israel; he shall blossom like the lily;

he shall take root like the trees of Lebanon;

 6  his shoots shall spread out; his beauty shall be like the olive,

and his fragrance like Lebanon.

 7  They shall return and dwell beneath my shadow;

they shall flourish like the grain; they shall blossom like the vine;

their fame shall be like the wine of Lebanon.

 8  O Ephraim, what have I to do with idols?

It is I who answer and look after you.

I am like an evergreen 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 upright walk in them,

but transgressors stumble in them. (ESV) 

Yo seré a Israel como rocío; él florecerá como lirio, y extenderá sus raíces como el Líbano.

Se extenderán sus ramas, y será su gloria como la del olivo, y perfumará como el Líbano.

Volverán y se sentarán bajo su sombra; serán vivificados como trigo, y florecerán como la vid; su olor será como de vino del Líbano.

Efraín dirá: ¿Qué más tendré ya con los ídolos? Yo lo oiré, y miraré; yo seré a él como la haya verde; de mí será hallado tu fruto.

¿Quién es sabio para que entienda esto, y prudente para que lo sepa? Porque los caminos de Jehová son rectos, y los justos andarán por ellos; mas los rebeldes caerán en ellos. (RVR 1960)

This morning one of my devotionals had verse 9b as a reading for the ways of the Lord are right, and the upright walk in them, but transgressors stumble in them, as I thought about the meaning of this, I came to the conclusion I have reached many times before when reading scripture; God’s ways are always righteous and correct only those living out God’s ways in their daily lives are upright (righteous) in God’s eyes. Those who are opposed to God those living in and loving the ways of the world stumble over (find the ways of God) a stumbling block to their lifestyle. – Mike
