Hosea 3:4

Context
3:4 For the Israelites 1  must live many days without a king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred fertility pillar, without ephod or idols.

Hosea 10:1

Context
Israel is Guilty of Fertility Cult Worship

10:1 Israel was a fertile vine

that yielded fruit.

As his fruit multiplied,

he multiplied altars to Baal. 2 

As his land prospered,

they adorned the fertility pillars.

1 tn Heb “sons of Israel” (so NASB); KJV “children of Israel”; NAB “people of Israel” (likewise in the following verse).

2 tn The phrase “to Baal” does not appear in the Hebrew text here, but is implied; it is supplied in the translation for the sake of clarity. Cf. NCV “altars for idols”; NLT “altars of their foreign gods.”
