NASB — Hosea 7 — KJV

Ephraim’s Iniquity

  1 When I awould heal Israel,
  The iniquity of Ephraim is uncovered,
  And the evil deeds of Samaria,
  For they deal bfalsely;
  The thief enters in,
  cBandits raid outside,
  2 And they do not Iconsider in their hearts
  That I aremember all their wickedness.
  Now their bdeeds are all around them;
  They are before My face.
  3 aWith their wickedness they make the bking glad,
  And the princes with their clies.
  4 They are aall adulterers,
  Like an oven heated by the baker
  Who ceases to stir up [the fire]
  From the kneading of the dough until it is leavened.
  5 On the Iday of our king, the princes abecame sick with the heat of wine;
  He stretched out his hand with bscoffers,
  6 For their hearts are like an aoven
  [As] they approach their Iplotting;
  Their IIanger IIIsmolders all night,
  In the morning it burns like a flaming fire.
  7 All of them are hot like an oven,
  And they consume their arulers;
  All their kings have fallen.
  bNone of them calls on Me.

  8 ¶ Ephraim amixes himself with the Inations;
  Ephraim has become a cake not turned.
  9 aStrangers devour his strength,
  Yet he bdoes not know [it];
  Gray hairs also are sprinkled on him,
  Yet he does not know [it].
  10 Though the apride of Israel testifies against him,
  Yet bthey have not returned to the LORD their God,
  Nor have they sought Him, for all this.
  11 So aEphraim has become like a silly dove, bwithout Isense;
  They call to cEgypt, they go to dAssyria.
  12 When they go, I will aspread My net over them;
  I will bring them down like the birds of the sky.
  I will bchastise them in accordance with the Iproclamation to their assembly.
  13 aWoe to them, for they have bstrayed from Me!
  Destruction is theirs, for they have rebelled against Me!
  I cwould redeem them, but they speak lies against Me.
  14 And athey do not cry to Me from their heart
  When they wail on their beds;
  For the sake of grain and new wine they Ibassemble themselves,
  They cturn away from Me.
  15 Although I trained [and] strengthened their arms,
  Yet they adevise evil against Me.
  16 They turn, [but] not Iupward,
  They are like a adeceitful bow;
  Their princes will fall by the sword
  Because of the IIbinsolence of their tongue.
  This [will be] their cderision in the land of Egypt.

A reproof of manifold sins.

1 ¶ When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, [and] the troop of robbers spoileth without. 2 And they consider not in their hearts [that] I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before my face. 3 They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies. 4 They [are] all adulterers, as an oven heated by the baker, [who] ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough, until it be leavened. 5 In the day of our king the princes have made [him] sick with bottles of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners. 6 For they have made ready their heart like an oven, whiles they lie in wait: their baker sleepeth all the night; in the morning it burneth as a flaming fire. 7 They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen: [there is] none among them that calleth unto me. 8 Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned. 9 Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth [it] not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not. 10 And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek him for all this.

God's wrath against them for their hypocrisy.

11 ¶ Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria. 12 When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard. 13 Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me. 14 And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, [and] they rebel against me. 15 Though I have bound [and] strengthened their arms, yet do they imagine mischief against me. 16 They return, [but] not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this [shall be] their derision in the land of Egypt.
