← Hosea 7   Hosea 9 →

1 Put the horn to your mouth. He comes like an eagle against the house of the Lord; because they have gone against my agreement, they have not kept my law.

2 They will send up to me a cry for help: We, Israel, have knowledge of you, O God of Israel.

3 Israel has given up what is good; his haters will go after him.

4 They have put up kings, but not by me; they have made princes, but I had no knowledge of it; they have made images of silver and gold, so that they may be cut off.

5 I will have nothing to do with your young ox, O Samaria; my wrath is burning against them; how long will it be before the children of Israel make themselves clean?

6 The workman made it, it is no god; the ox of Samaria will be broken into bits.

7 For they have been planting the wind, and their fruit will be the storm; his grain has no stem, it will give no meal, and if it does, a strange nation will take it.

8 Israel has come to destruction; now they are among the nations like a cup in which there is no pleasure.

9 For they have gone up to Assyria like an ass going by himself; Ephraim has given money to get lovers.

10 But though they give money to the nations for help, still I will send them in all directions; and in a short time they will be without a king and rulers.

11 Because Ephraim has been increasing altars for sin, altars have become a cause of sin to him.

12 Though I put my law in writing for him in ten thousand rules, they are to him as a strange thing.

13 He gives the offerings of his lovers, and takes the flesh for food; but the Lord has no pleasure in them; now he will keep in mind their evil-doing and give them the punishment of their sins; they will go back to Egypt.

14 For Israel has no memory of his Maker, and has put up the houses of kings; and Judah has made great the number of his walled towns. But I will send a fire on his towns and put an end to his great houses.
