Hosea 4

Hear
<08085> (8798)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
ye children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_:
for the LORD
<03068>
hath a controversy
<07379>
with the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the land
<0776>_,
because [there is] no truth
<0571>_,
nor mercy
<02617>_,
nor knowledge
<01847>
of God
<0430>
in the land
<0776>_.
By swearing
<0422> (8800)_,
and lying
<03584> (8763)_,
and killing
<07523> (8800)_,
and stealing
<01589> (8800)_,
and committing adultery
<05003> (8800)_,
they break out
<06555> (8804)_,
and blood
<01818>
toucheth
<05060> (8804)
blood
<01818>_.
{blood: Heb. bloods}
Therefore shall the land
<0776>
mourn
<056> (8799)_,
and every one that dwelleth
<03427> (8802)
therein shall languish
<0535> (8797)_,
with the beasts
<02416>
of the field
<07704>_,
and with the fowls
<05775>
of heaven
<08064>_;
yea, the fishes
<01709>
of the sea
<03220>
also shall be taken away
<0622> (8735)_.
Yet let no man
<0376>
strive
<07378> (8799)_,
nor reprove
<03198> (8686)
another
<0376>_:
for thy people
<05971>
[are] as they that strive
<07378> (8688)
with the priest
<03548>_.
Therefore shalt thou fall
<03782> (8804)
in the day
<03117>_,
and the prophet
<05030>
also shall fall
<03782> (8804)
with thee in the night
<03915>_,
and I will destroy
<01820> (8804)
thy mother
<0517>_.
{destroy: Heb. cut off}
My people
<05971>
are destroyed
<01820> (8738)
for lack of knowledge
<01847>_:
because thou hast rejected
<03988> (8804)
knowledge
<01847>_,
I will also reject
<03988> (8799)
thee, that thou shalt be no priest
<03547> (8763)
to me: seeing thou hast forgotten
<07911> (8799)
the law
<08451>
of thy God
<0430>_,
I will also forget
<07911> (8799)
thy children
<01121>_.
{destroyed: Heb. cut off}
As they were increased
<07230>_,
so they sinned
<02398> (8804)
against me: [therefore] will I change
<04171> (8686)
their glory
<03519>
into shame
<07036>_.
They eat up
<0398> (8799)
the sin
<02403>
of my people
<05971>_,
and they set
<05375> (8799)
their heart
<05315>
on their iniquity
<05771>_.
{set...: Heb. lift up their soul to}
And there shall be, like people
<05971>_,
like priest
<03548>_:
and I will punish
<06485> (8804)
them for their ways
<01870>_,
and reward
<07725> (8686)
them their doings
<04611>_.
{punish: Heb. visit upon} {reward: Heb. cause to return}
For they shall eat
<0398> (8804)_,
and not have enough
<07646> (8799)_:
they shall commit whoredom
<02181> (8689)_,
and shall not increase
<06555> (8799)_:
because they have left off
<05800> (8804)
to take heed
<08104> (8800)
to the LORD
<03068>_.
Whoredom
<02184>
and wine
<03196>
and new wine
<08492>
take away
<03947> (8799)
the heart
<03820>_.
My people
<05971>
ask
<07592> (8799)
counsel at their stocks
<06086>_,
and their staff
<04731>
declareth
<05046> (8686)
unto them: for the spirit
<07307>
of whoredoms
<02183>
hath caused [them] to err
<08582> (8689)_,
and they have gone a whoring
<02181> (8799)
from under their God
<0430>_.
They sacrifice
<02076> (8762)
upon the tops
<07218>
of the mountains
<02022>_,
and burn incense
<06999> (8762)
upon the hills
<01389>_,
under oaks
<0437>
and poplars
<03839>
and elms
<0424>_,
because the shadow
<06738>
thereof [is] good
<02896>_:
therefore your daughters
<01323>
shall commit whoredom
<02181> (8799)_,
and your spouses
<03618>
shall commit adultery
<05003> (8762)_.
I will not punish
<06485> (8799)
your daughters
<01323>
when they commit whoredom
<02181> (8799)_,
nor your spouses
<03618>
when they commit adultery
<05003> (8762)_:
for themselves are separated
<06504> (8762)
with whores
<02181> (8802)_,
and they sacrifice
<02076> (8762)
with harlots
<06948>_:
therefore the people
<05971>
[that] doth not understand
<0995> (8799)
shall fall
<03832> (8735)_.
{I will not: or, Shall I not} {fall: or, be punished}
Though thou, Israel
<03478>_,
play the harlot
<02181> (8802)_,
[yet] let not Judah
<03063>
offend
<0816> (8799)_;
and come
<0935> (8799)
not ye unto Gilgal
<01537>_,
neither go ye up
<05927> (8799)
to Bethaven
<01007>_,
nor swear
<07650> (8735)_,
The LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_.
For Israel
<03478>
slideth back
<05637> (8804)
as a backsliding
<05637> (8802)
heifer
<06510>_:
now the LORD
<03068>
will feed
<07462> (8799)
them as a lamb
<03532>
in a large place
<04800>_.
Ephraim
<0669>
[is] joined
<02266> (8803)
to idols
<06091>_:
let him alone
<03240> (8685)_.
Their drink
<05435>
is sour
<05493> (8804)_:
they have committed whoredom
<02181> (8689)
continually
<02181> (8687)_:
her rulers
<04043>
[with] shame
<07036>
do love
<0157> (8804)_,
Give
<03051> (8798)
ye. {sour: Heb. gone} {rulers: Heb. shields}
The wind
<07307>
hath bound her up
<06887> (8804)
in her wings
<03671>_,
and they shall be ashamed
<0954> (8799)
because of their sacrifices
<02077>_.
