Israel Has Not Returned to God

1 Hear this word, you cows of Bashan1 on Mount Samaria,2 you women who oppress the poor3 and crush the needy4 and say to your husbands,5 "Bring us some drinks!6" 2 The Sovereign LORD has sworn by his holiness: "The time7 will surely come when you will be taken away8 with hooks,9 the last of you with fishhooks. 3 You will each go straight out through breaks in the wall,10 and you will be cast out toward Harmon,a " declares the LORD. 4 "Go to Bethel11 and sin; go to Gilgal12 and sin yet more. Bring your sacrifices every morning,13 your tithes14 every three years.b15 5 Burn leavened bread16 as a thank offering and brag about your freewill offerings17-- boast about them, you Israelites, for this is what you love to do," declares the Sovereign LORD.
