Hosea 12:7-14 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
7 The merchant uses dishonest scales;1 he loves to defraud. 8 Ephraim boasts,2 "I am very rich; I have become wealthy.3 With all my wealth they will not find in me any iniquity or sin." 9 "I am the LORD your God, [who brought you] out ofa Egypt;4 I will make you live in tents5 again, as in the days of your appointed feasts. 10 I spoke to the prophets, gave them many visions and told parables6 through them."7 11 Is Gilead wicked?8 Its people are worthless! Do they sacrifice bulls in Gilgal?9 Their altars will be like piles of stones on a plowed field.10 12 Jacob fled to the country of Aramb;11 Israel served to get a wife, and to pay for her he tended sheep.12 13 The LORD used a prophet to bring Israel up from Egypt,13 by a prophet he cared for him.14 14 But Ephraim has bitterly provoked him to anger; his Lord will leave upon him the guilt of his bloodshed15 and will repay him for his contempt.16
