Hosea 13:5-15 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
5 It was I who fed a you in the wilderness, in the land of drought. 6 When I fed b them, they were satisfied; they were satisfied, and their heart was proud; therefore they forgot me. 7 So I will become like a lion to them, like a leopard I will lurk beside the way. 8 I will fall upon them like a bear robbed of her cubs, and will tear open the covering of their heart; there I will devour them like a lion, as a wild animal would mangle them. 9 I will destroy you, O Israel; who can help you? c 10 Where now is d your king, that he may save you? Where in all your cities are your rulers, of whom you said, "Give me a king and rulers"? 11 I gave you a king in my anger, and I took him away in my wrath. 12 Ephraim's iniquity is bound up; his sin is kept in store. 13 The pangs of childbirth come for him, but he is an unwise son; for at the proper time he does not present himself at the mouth of the womb. 14 Shall I ransom them from the power of Sheol? Shall I redeem them from Death? O Death, where are e your plagues? O Sheol, where is f your destruction? Compassion is hidden from my eyes. 15 Although he may flourish among rushes, g the east wind shall come, a blast from the Lord, rising from the wilderness; and his fountain shall dry up, his spring shall be parched. It shall strip his treasury of every precious thing.
