Hosea 5

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

5:1 Hear this, O ye priests, and attend, ye house of Israel, and give ear, O house of the king, for unto you pertaineth the judgment; for ye have been a snare on Mizpah, and a net spread upon Tabor.

5:2 And they that fall away are gone deep in making slaughter; and I am rejected of them all.

5:3 I, even I, know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from Me; for now, O Ephraim, thou hast committed harlotry, Israel is defiled.

5:4 Their doings will not suffer them to return unto their God; for the spirit of harlotry is within them, and they know not the LORD.

5:5 But the pride of Israel shall testify to his face; and Israel and Ephraim shall stumble in their iniquity, Judah also shall stumble with them.

5:6 With their flocks and with their herds they shall go to seek the LORD, but they shall not find Him; He hath withdrawn Himself from them.

5:7 They have dealt treacherously against the LORD, for they have begotten strange children; now shall the new moon devour them with their portions.

5:8 Blow ye the horn in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah; sound an alarm at Beth-aven: 'Behind thee, O Benjamin!'

5:9 Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke; among the tribes of Israel do I make known that which shall surely be.

5:10 The princes of Judah are like them that remove the landmark; I will pour out My wrath upon them like water.

5:11 Oppressed is Ephraim, crushed in his right; because he willingly walked after filth.

5:12 Therefore am I unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.

5:13 And when Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah his wound, Ephraim went to Assyria, and sent to King Contentious; but he is not able to heal you, neither shall he cure you of your wound.

5:14 For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah; I, even I, will tear and go away, I will take away, and there shall be none to deliver.

5:15 I will go and return to My place, till they acknowledge their guilt, and seek My face; in their trouble they will seek Me earnestly:
