Hosea 9:3; Hosea 9:6; Hosea 9:17 (Holman Christian Standard)
They will not stay in the land of the Lord. Instead, Ephraim will return to Egypt, and they will eat unclean food in Assyria.
For even if they flee from devastation, Egypt will gather them, and Memphis will bury them. Thistles will take possession of their precious silver; thorns will invade their tents.
My God will reject them because they have not listened to Him; they will become wanderers among the nations.
