Hoshea (Book of Hosea), Chapter 6

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 'Come, and let us return unto HaShem; for He hath torn, and He will heal us, He hath smitten, and He will bind us up.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 After two days will He revive us, on the third day He will raise us up, that we may live in His presence.
