Hosea 8:1

God Will Raise Up the Assyrians to Attack Israel

8:1 Sound the alarm! 1 

An eagle 2  looms over the temple of the Lord!

For they have broken their covenant with me, 3 

and have rebelled against my law.

Hosea 8:13


8:13 They offer up sacrificial gifts to me,

and eat the meat,

but the Lord does not accept their sacrifices. 4 

Soon he will remember their wrongdoing,

he will punish their sins,

and they will return to Egypt.

1 tn Heb “A horn unto your gums!”; NAB “A trumpet to your lips!”

2 tn Or perhaps “A vulture.” Some identify the species indicated by the Hebrew term נֶשֶׁר (nesher) as the griffon vulture (cf. NEB, NRSV).

3 tn Heb “my covenant” (so NAB, NIV, NRSV); TEV “the covenant I made with them.”

4 tn Heb “does not accept them”; the referent (their sacrifices) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
