Hosea 4:1-6 (Common English Bible)

Israel’s sins and coming punishment

1 Hear the LORD's word, people of Israel; for the LORD has a dispute with the inhabitants of the land. There's no faithful love or loyalty, and no knowledge of God in the land. 2 Swearing, lying, murder, together with stealing and adultery are common; bloody crime followed by bloody crime. 3 Therefore, the earth itself becomes sick, and all who live on it grow weak; together with the wild animals and the birds in the sky, even the fish of the sea are dying. 4 Yet let no one protest, and let no one complain. Listen, priest, I am angry with your people.a 5 You will stumble by day; and at nighttime so will your prophet, and I will destroy your mother. 6 My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Since you have rejected knowledge, so I will reject you from serving me as a priest. Since you have forgotten the Instruction of your God, so also I will forget your children.
