← 何西阿書 7   何西阿書 9 →

1 你用口吹角罷!敵人如來攻打耶和華的家;因為這民違背我的約,干犯我的律法。

2 他們必呼叫我說:我的啊,我們以色列認識你了。

3 以色列丟棄良善(或譯:福分);仇敵必追逼他。

4 他們立君王,卻不由我;他們立首領,我卻不認。他們用為自己製造偶像,以致被剪除。

5 撒瑪利亞啊,耶和華已經丟棄你的犢;我的怒氣向拜犢的人發作。他們到幾時方能無罪呢?

6 犢出於以色列,是匠人所造的,並不是撒瑪利亞犢必被打碎。

7 他們所種的是,所收的是暴;所種的不成禾稼,就是發苗也不結實;即便結實,外邦人必吃。

8 以色列吃;現今在列國中,好像人不喜悅的器皿。

9 他們投奔亞述,如同獨行的野驢;以法蓮賄買朋黨。

10 他們雖在列邦中賄買人,現在我卻要聚集懲罰他們;他們因君和首領所加的重擔日漸衰微。

11 以法蓮增添祭壇取罪;因此,祭壇使他犯罪。

12 我為他了律萬條,他卻以為與他毫無關涉。

13 至於獻給我的祭物,他們自食其耶和華卻不悅納他們。現在必記念他們的孽,追討他們的罪惡;他們必歸回埃及

14 以色列忘記造他的主,建造宮殿猶大多造堅固城,我卻要降焚燒他的城邑,燒滅其中的宮殿
