NASB — Hosea 12 — KJV

Ephraim Reminded

  1 IEphraim feeds on awind,
  And pursues the beast wind continually;
  He multiplies lies and violence.
  Moreover, IIhe makes a covenant with Assyria,
  And oil is carried to Egypt.
  2 The LORD also has a adispute with Judah,
  And will punish Jacob baccording to his ways;
  He will repay him according to his deeds.
  3 In the womb he atook his brother by the heel,
  And in his maturity he bcontended with God.
  4 Yes, he wrestled with the angel and prevailed;
  He wept and asought His favor.
  He found Him at bBethel
  And there He spoke with us,
  5 Even the LORD, the God of hosts,
  The LORD is His Ianame.
  6 Therefore, areturn to your God,
  bObserve Ikindness and justice,
  And cwait for your God continually.
  7 A Imerchant, in whose hands are false abalances,
  He loves to oppress.
  8 And Ephraim said, “Surely I have become arich,
  I have found wealth for myself;
  In all my labors they will find in me
  bNo iniquity, which [would be] sin.”
  9 But I [have been] the LORD your God since the land of Egypt;
  I will make you alive in tents again,
  As in the days of the appointed festival.
  10 I have also spoken to the aprophets,
  And I Igave numerous visions,
  And through the prophets I gave bparables.
  11 Is there iniquity [in] Gilead?
  Surely they are worthless.
  In Gilgal they sacrifice bulls,
  Yes, atheir altars are like the stone heaps
  Beside the furrows of the field.

A reproof of Ephraim, Judah, and Jacob.

1 ¶ Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind: he daily increaseth lies and desolation; and they do make a covenant with the Assyrians, and oil is carried into Egypt. 2 The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him.

By former favours he exhorteth to repentance.

3 ¶ He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God: 4 Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him [in] Bethel, and there he spake with us; 5 Even the LORD God of hosts; the LORD [is] his memorial. 6 Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually.

Ephraim's sins provoke God.

7 ¶ [He is] a merchant, the balances of deceit [are] in his hand: he loveth to oppress. 8 And Ephraim said, Yet I am become rich, I have found me out substance: [in] all my labours they shall find none iniquity in me that [were] sin. 9 And I [that am] the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast. 10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets. 11 [Is there] iniquity [in] Gilead? surely they are vanity: they sacrifice bullocks in Gilgal; yea, their altars [are] as heaps in the furrows of the fields. 12 And Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and for a wife he kept [sheep]. 13 And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved. 14 Ephraim provoked [him] to anger most bitterly: therefore shall he leave his blood upon him, and his reproach shall his Lord return unto him.
