Hosea 13:6-16 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
6 When I fed a 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? b 10 Where now is c 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 d your plagues? O Sheol, where is e your destruction? Compassion is hidden from my eyes. 15 Although he may flourish among rushes, f 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. 16 g Samaria shall bear her guilt, because she has rebelled against her God; they shall fall by the sword, their little ones shall be dashed in pieces, and their pregnant women ripped open.
