Hosea 9:1-2

Context
Fertility Cult Festivals Have Intoxicated Israel

9:1 O Israel, do not rejoice jubilantly 1  like the nations,

for you are unfaithful 2  to your God.

You love to receive a prostitute's wages 3 

on all the floors where you thresh your grain.

9:2 Threshing floors and wine vats will not feed the people, 4 

and new wine only deceives them. 5 

1 tn Heb “do not rejoice unto jubilation”; KJV “Rejoice not…for joy”; NASB “Do not rejoice…with exultation.”

2 tn Heb “you have committed adultery”; NRSV “you have played the whore.”

3 tn Heb “you love the wages of the prostitute” (NIV similar); NAB “loving a harlot’s hire.”

4 tn Heb “them”; the referent (the people) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 tn Heb “her” (so KJV, ASV). This is taken as a collective singular (so also most modern English versions).
