Bible Version

Hosea chapter 4

1
The LORD has an accusation to bring against the people who live in this land. Listen, Israel, to what he says: "There is no faithfulness or love in the land, and the people do not acknowledge me as God.
2
They make promises and break them; they lie, murder, steal, and commit adultery. Crimes increase, and there is one murder after another.
3
And so the land will dry up, and everything that lives on it will die. All the animals and birds, and even the fish, will die."
4
The LORD says, "Let no one accuse the people or reprimand them---my complaint is against you priests.
5
Night and day you blunder on, and the prophets do no better than you. I am going to destroy Israel, your mother.
6
My people are doomed because they do not acknowledge me. You priests have refused to acknowledge me and have rejected my teaching, and so I reject you and will not acknowledge your sons as my priests.
7
"The more of you priests there are, the more you sin against me, and so I will turn your honor into disgrace.
8
You grow rich from the sins of my people, and so you want them to sin more and more.
9
You will suffer the same punishment as the people! I will punish you and make you pay for the evil you do.
10
You will eat your share of the sacrifices, but still be hungry. You will worship the fertility gods, but still have no children, because you have turned away from me to follow other gods."
11
The LORD says, "Wine, both old and new, is robbing my people of their senses!
12
They ask for revelations from a piece of wood! A stick tells them what they want to know! They have left me. Like a woman who becomes a prostitute, they have given themselves to other gods.
13
At sacred places on the mountaintops they offer sacrifices, and on the hills they burn incense under tall, spreading trees, because the shade is so pleasant! "As a result, your daughters serve as prostitutes, and your daughters-in-law commit adultery.
14
Yet I will not punish them for this, because you yourselves go off with temple prostitutes, and together with them you offer pagan sacrifices. As the proverb says, 'A people without sense will be ruined.'
15
"Even though you people of Israel are unfaithful to me, may Judah not be guilty of the same thing. Don't worship at Gilgal or Bethaven, or make promises there in the name of the living LORD.
16
The people of Israel are as stubborn as mules. How can I feed them like lambs in a meadow?
17
The people of Israel are under the spell of idols. Let them go their own way.
18
After drinking much wine, they delight in their prostitution, preferring disgrace to honor.
19
They will be carried away as by the wind, and they will be ashamed of their pagan sacrifices.

Hosea chapter 5

1
"Listen to this, you priests! Pay attention, people of Israel! Listen, you that belong to the royal family! You are supposed to judge with justice---so judgment will fall on you! You have become a trap at Mizpah, a net spread on Mount Tabor,
2
a deep pit at Acacia City, and I will punish all of you.
3
I know what Israel is like---she cannot hide from me. She has been unfaithful, and her people are unfit to worship me."
4
The evil that the people have done keeps them from returning to their God. Idolatry has a powerful hold on them, and they do not acknowledge the LORD.
5
The arrogance of the people of Israel cries out against them. Their sins make them stumble and fall, and the people of Judah fall with them.
6
They take their sheep and cattle to offer as sacrifices to the LORD, but it does them no good. They cannot find him, for he has left them.
7
They have been unfaithful to the LORD; their children do not belong to him. So now they and their lands will soon be destroyed.
8
Blow the war trumpets in Gibeah! Sound the alarm in Ramah! Raise the war cry at Bethaven! Into battle, men of Benjamin!
9
The day of punishment is coming, and Israel will be ruined. People of Israel, this will surely happen!
10
The LORD says, "I am angry because the leaders of Judah have invaded Israel and stolen land from her. So I will pour out punishment on them like a flood.
11
Israel is suffering oppression; she has lost land that was rightfully hers, because she insisted on going for help to those who had none to give.
12
I will bring destruction on Israel and ruin on the people of Judah.
13
"When Israel saw how sick she was and when Judah saw her own wounds, then Israel went to Assyria to ask the great emperor for help, but he could not cure them or heal their wounds.
14
I will attack the people of Israel and Judah like a lion. I myself will tear them to pieces and then leave them. When I drag them off, no one will be able to save them.
15
"I will abandon my people until they have suffered enough for their sins and come looking for me. Perhaps in their suffering they will try to find me."

Hosea chapter 6

1
The people say, "Let's return to the LORD! He has hurt us, but he will be sure to heal us; he has wounded us, but he will bandage our wounds, won't he?
2
In two or three days he will revive us, and we will live in his presence.
3
Let us try to know the LORD. He will come to us as surely as the day dawns, as surely as the spring rains fall upon the earth."
4
But the LORD says, "Israel and Judah, what am I going to do with you? Your love for me disappears as quickly as morning mist; it is like dew, that vanishes early in the day.
5
That is why I have sent my prophets to you with my message of judgment and destruction. What I want from you is plain and clear:
6
I want your constant love, not your animal sacrifices. I would rather have my people know me than burn offerings to me.
7
"But as soon as they entered the land at Adam, they broke the covenant I had made with them.
8
Gilead is a city full of evil people and murderers.
9
The priests are like a gang of robbers who wait in ambush for someone. Even on the road to the holy place at Shechem they commit murder. And they do all this evil deliberately!
10
I have seen a horrible thing in Israel: my people have defiled themselves by worshiping idols.
11
"And as for you, people of Judah, I have set a time to punish you also for what you are doing.
