Hosea 8:11; Hosea 10:1-2; Hosea 10:8; Hosea 12:11
Since Ephraim has multiplied altars for sin, They have become altars of sinning for him.
Israel is a luxuriant vine; He produces fruit for himself. The more his fruit, The more altars he made; The richer his land, The better he made the sacred pillars.
Their heart is faithless; Now they must bear their guilt. The LORD will break down their altars And destroy their sacred pillars.
Also the high places of Aven, the sin of Israel, will be destroyed; Thorn and thistle will grow on their altars; Then they will say to the mountains, "Cover us!" And to the hills, "Fall on us!"
Is there iniquity in Gilead? Surely they are worthless. In Gilgal they sacrifice bulls, Yes, their altars are like the stone heaps Beside the furrows of the field.
