From KJV Hosea 14:1-9

Hosea 14:1 O israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.
Hosea 14:2 Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.
Hosea 14:3 Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy.
Hosea 14:4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.
Hosea 14:5 I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
Hosea 14:6 His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
Hosea 14:7 They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.
Hosea 14:8 Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found.
Hosea 14:9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

Post subject: This is a homoerotic passage

Dear Web-Ministry,

I am doing some research on Hosea 14 and I came across your website. Has anyone noticed that in this passage God is referred to as a he, and Isreal is referred to as a he? Has anyone noticed that the language used in Hosea 14 is very much like the erotic language used in Song of Songs? If one reads this passage carefully, it appears that God and Israel are making love. Thus God and Isreal are portrayed as Homosexual lovers!

What a wonderful blessing this text can be for gay men, and what a wonderful tool it can be used as to help wipe away the homophobia that exists in the church. I thought I would share this healing information with you.

Blessings and peace,
George
