Hosea 10:12
זִרְעוּ לָכֶם לִצְדָקָה קִצְרוּ לְפִי חֶסֶד נִירוּ לָכֶם נִיר וְעֵת לִדְרוֹשׁ אֶת ה' עַד יָבוֹא וְיֹרֶה צֶדֶק לָכֶם:
Sow to yourselves according to righteousness, reap according to mercy, break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek Adonai, till God comes and causes righteousness to rain upon you. [JPS translation]
