Hosea 4

1 Hear the word of Jehovah, ye sons of Israel; for Jehovah has strife with those who dwell in the land, for there is no truth, and no mercy, and no knowledge of God in the land.

2 By making·​·oaths, and deceiving, and murdering, and stealing, and committing·​·adultery, they break·​·through*, and blood touches blood.

3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and all dwelling in it shall languish, with the animal of the field, and with the fowls of the heavens; and even the fish of the sea shall be gathered·​·in.

4 Only let no man strive, nor reprove another man; for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.

5 And thou shalt stumble in the day, and the prophet also shall stumble with thee in the night, and I will cut·​·off thy mother.

6 My people are cut·​·off for being without the knowledge; for thou hast rejected the knowledge, and I will reject thee from being·​·a·​·priest to Me; and thou hast forgotten the law of thy God; I also will forget thy sons.

7 As they multiplied, so they sinned against Me; therefore will I exchange their glory with disgrace.

8 They eat·​·up the sin of My people, and they lift·​·up their soul to their iniquity.

9 And it shall be, as the people, so the priest; and I will visit upon him his ways, and cause his actions to return to him.

10 And they shall eat, and not be satisfied; they shall commit·​·harlotry, and shall not break·​·forth*: because they have forsaken to take·​·heed to Jehovah.

11 Harlotry and wine and must* grip the heart.

12 My people ask their tree, and their stick tells them; for the spirit of harlotries has caused them to stray, and they have committed·​·harlotry beneath their God.

13 They sacrifice upon the heads of the mountains, and burn·​·incense upon the hills, under the holly·​·oak, and poplar and strong·​·oak, for its shade is good; therefore your daughters shall commit·​·harlotry, and your daughters-in-law shall commit·​·adultery.

14 Shall I not visit upon your daughters when they commit·​·harlotry, nor upon your daughters-in-law when they commit·​·adultery? For they separate themselves with the harlots, and they sacrifice with the prostitutes; and the people who does not understand shall fall.

15 Though thou, Israel, commit·​·harlotry, yet let not Judah be·​·guilty; and come· you not ·to Gilgal, neither go· ye ·up to Beth-aven, nor promise, saying, As Jehovah lives.

16 For Israel defies as a defiant cow; now Jehovah will pasture them as a lamb in a broad·​·place.

17 Ephraim is coupled to idols; leave· him ·alone.

18 Their inebriating·​·drink is removed; committing·​·harlotry they have committed·​·harlotry, they have loved, they have given disgrace to her shields.

19 The wind has bundled her in her wings, and they shall be·​·ashamed of their sacrifices.
