NASB — Hosea 8 — KJV

Israel Reaps the Whirlwind

  1 a[Put] the trumpet to your Ilips!
  bLike an eagle [the enemy comes] cagainst the house of the LORD,
  Because they have dtransgressed My covenant
  And rebelled against My elaw.
  2 aThey cry out to Me,
  “My God, bwe of Israel know You!”
  3 Israel has rejected the good;
  The enemy will pursue him.
  4 aThey have set up kings, but not by Me;
  They have appointed princes, but I did not know [it].
  With their bsilver and gold they have made idols for themselves,
  That Ithey might be cut off.
  5 IHe has rejected your acalf, O Samaria, [saying],
  “My anger burns against them!”
  How long will they be incapable of binnocence?
  6 For from Israel is even this!
  A acraftsman made it, so it is not God;
  Surely the calf of Samaria will be broken to Ipieces.
  7 For athey sow the wind
  And they reap the bwhirlwind.
  The standing grain has no Iheads;
  It yields cno IIgrain.
  Should it yield, strangers would swallow it up.

  8 ¶ Israel is aswallowed up;
  They are now among the nations
  Like a bvessel in which no one delights.
  9 For they have gone up to aAssyria,
  [Like] ba wild donkey all alone;
  Ephraim has chired Ilovers.
  10 Even though they hire [allies] among the nations,
  Now I will agather them up;
  And they will begin bto Idiminish
  Because of the burden of the cking of princes.

  11 ¶ Since Ephraim has amultiplied altars for sin,
  They have become altars of sinning for him.
  12 Though aI wrote for him ten thousand [precepts] of My blaw,
  They are regarded as a strange thing.
  13 As for My asacrificial gifts,
  They bsacrifice the flesh and eat [it],
  [But] the LORD has taken no delight in them.
  Now He will cremember their iniquity,
  And dpunish [them] for their sins;
  They will return to eEgypt.
  14 For Israel has aforgotten his Maker and bbuilt palaces;
  And Judah has multiplied fortified cities,
  But I will send a cfire on its cities that it may consume its palatial dwellings.

Destruction is threatened for their impiety,

1 ¶ [Set] the trumpet to thy mouth. [He shall come] as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law. 2 Israel shall cry unto me, My God, we know thee. 3 Israel hath cast off [the thing that is] good: the enemy shall pursue him. 4 They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew [it] not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.

and idolatry,

5 ¶ Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast [thee] off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long [will it be] ere they attain to innocency? 6 For from Israel [was] it also: the workman made it; therefore it [is] not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces. 7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up. 8 Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein [is] no pleasure. 9 For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers. 10 Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes. 11 Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.

and impiety.

12 I have written to him the great things of my law, [but] they were counted as a strange thing. 13 They sacrifice flesh [for] the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat [it; but] the LORD accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt. 14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.
