Hosea 9:11

Context
The Fertility Worshipers Will Become Infertile

9:11 Ephraim will be like a bird;

what they value 1  will fly away.

They will not bear children –

they will not enjoy pregnancy –

they will not even conceive! 2 

1 tn Heb “their glory” (so NASB); TEV “Israel’s greateness.”

2 tn Heb “no childbearing, no pregnancy, no conception.” The preposition מִן (min) prefixed to the three parallel nouns functions in a privative sense, indicating deprivation (BDB 583 s.v. מִן 7).
