Hosea 3:1; Hosea 4:2; Hosea 4:13-14; Hosea 7:4
Then said the LORD unto me, Go yet, love a woman beloved of her friend, yet an adulteress , according to the love of the LORD toward the children of Israel, who look to other gods, and love flagons of wine.
By swearing , and lying , and killing , and stealing , and committing adultery , they break out , and blood toucheth blood.
They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom , and your spouses shall commit adultery .
I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom , nor your spouses when they commit adultery : for themselves are separated with whores , and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall .
They are all adulterers , as an oven heated by the baker , who ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough, until it be leavened .
