Hosea 7:8

Context
Israel Lacks Discernment and Refuses to Repent

7:8 Ephraim has mixed itself like flour 1  among the nations;

Ephraim is like a ruined cake of bread that is scorched on one side. 2 

1 tn The words “like flour” are not in the Hebrew text, but are implied by the imagery.

2 tn Heb “a cake of bread not turned.” This metaphor compares Ephraim to a ruined cake of bread that was not turned over in time to avoid being scorched and burned (see BDB 728 s.v. עֻגָה). Cf. NLT “as worthless as a half-baked cake.”
