- Oh, this chapter has some beautiful verses - God loved them and called them out of Egypt.

- It was I who taught Israel to walk, and I took them by the arms, but they did not understand that I had healed them.
4 I led them with cords of human kindness, with ropes of love. I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down and fed them.

- God's heart beats for Israel, and Her love for them stirs up her pity. God won't punish them or destroy them again. (Our love can stop us from doing terrible things out of anger and rejection.)

- Zie is God and not a human, the Holy One among them, and will not come after them in anger. I don't know if this is a sentiment of 'I'm God, I'm love, I don't have to act with human rage', or not.

- God roars like a lion, but that roar brings God's children hurrying to Them, and when they come They settle them again in their homes. A lion who loves, brings peace, is a caring parent.

- God is the faithful Holy One, but we are back to complaints about Israel's evil.
