    6. Exegetical Analysis of the Text Hosea 6:1 “Come, let us return to Yahweh; for he has torn, but he will heal us; he struck, but he will bind us.” Both verbs לְכוּ (הָלַךְ) “come” and נָשׁוּבָה (שׁוּב) “return” have full force in and their repetition (Hosea 5:15; 6:1) puts Yahweh’s action and the people’s action in counterpoise.
