Hosea 13

NCV 1 People used to fear the tribe of Ephraim; they were important people in Israel. But they sinned by worshiping Baal, so they must die. NIV 1 When Ephraim spoke, people trembled; he was exalted in Israel. But he became guilty of Baal worship and died. NCV 2 But they still keep on sinning more and more. They make idols of their silver, idols that are cleverly made, the work of a craftsman. Yet the people of Israel say to each other, "Kiss those calf idols and sacrifice to them." NIV 2 Now they sin more and more; they make idols for themselves from their silver, cleverly fashioned images, all of them the work of craftsmen. It is said of these people, “They offer human sacrifices! They kiss calf-idols!” NCV 3 So those people will be like the morning mist; they will disappear like the morning dew. They will be like chaff blown from the threshing floor, like smoke going out a window. NIV 3 Therefore they will be like the morning mist, like the early dew that disappears, like chaff swirling from a threshing floor, like smoke escaping through a window. NCV 4 "I, the Lord, have been your God since you were in the land of Egypt. You should have known no other God except me. I am the only one who saves. NIV 4 “But I have been the LORD your God ever since you came out of Egypt. You shall acknowledge no God but me, no Savior except me. NCV 5 I cared for them in the desert where it was hot and dry. NIV 5 I cared for you in the wilderness, in the land of burning heat. NCV 6 I gave them food, and they became full and satisfied. But then they became too proud and forgot me. NIV 6 When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot me. NCV 7 That is why I will be like a lion to them, like a leopard waiting by the road. NIV 7 So I will be like a lion to them, like a leopard I will lurk by the path. NCV 8 I will attack like a bear robbed of her cubs, ripping their bodies open. I will devour them like a lion and tear them apart like a wild animal. NIV 8 Like a bear robbed of her cubs, I will attack them and rip them open; like a lion I will devour them— a wild animal will tear them apart. NCV 9 "Israel, I will destroy you. Who will be your helper then? NIV 9 “You are destroyed, Israel, because you are against me, against your helper. NCV 10 What good is your king? Can he save you in any of your towns? What good are your leaders? You said, 'Give us a king and leaders.' NIV 10 Where is your king, that he may save you? Where are your rulers in all your towns, of whom you said, ‘Give me a king and princes’? NCV 11 So I gave you a king, but only in anger, and I took him away in my great anger. NIV 11 So in my anger I gave you a king, and in my wrath I took him away. NCV 12 The sins of Israel are on record, stored away, waiting for punishment. NIV 12 The guilt of Ephraim is stored up, his sins are kept on record. NCV 13 The pain of birth will come for him, but he is like a foolish baby who won't come out of its mother's womb. NIV 13 Pains as of a woman in childbirth come to him, but he is a child without wisdom; when the time arrives, he doesn’t have the sense to come out of the womb. NCV 14 Will I save them from the place of the dead? Will I rescue them from death? Where is your sickness, death? Where is your pain, place of death? I will show them no mercy. NIV 14 “I will deliver this people from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. Where, O death, are your plagues? Where, O grave, is your destruction? “I will have no compassion, NCV 15 Israel is doing well among the nations, but the Lord will send a wind from the east, coming from the desert, that will dry up his springs and wells of water. He will destroy from their treasure houses everything of value. NIV 15 even though he thrives among his brothers. An east wind from the LORD will come, blowing in from the desert; his spring will fail and his well dry up. His storehouse will be plundered of all its treasures. NCV 16 The nation of Israel will be ruined, because it fought against God. The people of Israel will die in war; their children will be torn to pieces, and their pregnant women will be ripped open." NIV 16 The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.”
