Hosea 8

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14]

8:1 Set the trumpet to thy mouth. [He cometh] as an eagle against the house of Jehovah, because they have transgressed my covenant, and rebelled against my law.

8:2 They shall cry unto me, My God, we know thee; [we], Israel.

8:3 Israel hath cast off good: the enemy shall pursue him.

8:4 They have set up kings, but not by me; they have made princes, and I knew it not; of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.

8:5 Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast [thee] off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will they be incapable of purity?

8:6 For from Israel is this also: -- a workman made it, and itis no God: for the calf of Samaria shall be [broken in] pieces.

8:7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk; should it sprout, it would yield no meal; if so be it yield, strangers shall swallow it up.

8:8 Israel is swallowed up: now are they become among the nations as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.

8:9 For they are gone up [to] Assyria [as] a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers.

8:10 Although they hire among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall begin to be straitened under the burden of the king of princes.

8:11 Because Ephraim hath multiplied altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.

8:12 I have prescribed unto him the manifold things of my law: they are counted [as] a strange thing.

8:13 They sacrifice flesh [for] the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; Jehovah hath no delight in them. Now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.

8:14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.
