Hosea 8 (Third Millennium Bible)

View In My Bible
1 "Set the trumpet to thy mouth! He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed My covenant, and trespassed against My law. 2 Israel shall cry unto Me, `My God, we know Thee!' 3 Israel hath cast off the thing that is good; the enemy shall pursue him. 4 They have set up kings, but not by Me; they have made princes, and I knew it not. Of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off. 5 "Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; Mine anger is kindled against them. How long will it be ere they attain to innocency? 6 For from Israel was it also: the workman made it, therefore it is not God; but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces. 7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. It hath no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal. If so it shall yield, the strangers shall swallow it up. 8 "Israel is swallowed up; now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure. 9 For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself; Ephraim hath hired lovers. 10 Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes. 11 "Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin. 12 I have written to him the great things of My law, but they were counted as a strange thing. 13 They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of Mine offerings, and eat it; but the LORD accepteth them not. Now will He remember their iniquity and visit their sins; they shall return to Egypt. 14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fortified cities. But I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof."
