Hosea 5:2

2 and a pit dug deep in Shittim; but I will punish all of them.

Hosea 5:2 In-Context

1 Hear this, O priests! Give heed, O house of Israel! Listen, O house of the king! For the judgment pertains to you; for you have been a snare at Mizpah, and a net spread upon Tabor,
2 and a pit dug deep in Shittim; but I will punish all of them.
3 I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from me; for now, O Ephraim, you have played the whore; Israel is defiled.
4 Their deeds do not permit them to return to their God. For the spirit of whoredom is within them, and they do not know the Lord.
5 Israel's pride testifies against him; Ephraim stumbles in his guilt; Judah also stumbles with them.
