NASB — Hosea 9 — KJV

Ephraim Punished

  1 aDo not rejoice, O Israel, Iwith exultation like the IInations!
  For you have bplayed the harlot, IIIforsaking your God.
  You have loved [harlots]’ earnings on IVevery threshing floor.
  2 Threshing floor and wine press will anot feed them,
  And the new wine will fail Ithem.
  3 They will not remain in athe LORDS land,
  But Ephraim will return to bEgypt,
  And in cAssyria they will eat dunclean [food].
  4 They will not pour out drink offerings of awine to the LORD,
  bTheir sacrifices will not please Him.
  [Their bread will] I[be] like IImourners’ bread;
  All who eat of it will be cdefiled,
  For their bread will be for IIIthemselves [alone];
  It will not enter the house of the LORD.
  5 aWhat will you do on the day of the appointed festival
  And on the day of the bfeast of the LORD?
  6 For behold, they will go because of destruction;
  Egypt will gather them up, aMemphis will bury them.
  Weeds will take over their treasures of silver;
  bThorns [will be] in their tents.

  The days of bretribution have come;
  ILet Israel know [this]!
  The prophet is a cfool,

  Because of the grossness of your einiquity,
  And [because] your hostility is [so] great.
  8 Ephraim [was] a watchman with my God, a prophet;
  [Yet] the snare of a bird catcher is in all his ways,
  [And] there is [only] hostility in the house of his God.
  9 They have gone adeep Iin depravity

  10 ¶ I found Israel like agrapes in the wilderness;
  I saw your forefathers as the bearliest fruit on the fig tree in its first [season].
  [But] they came to cBaal-peor and devoted themselves to Idshame,
  And they became as edetestable as that which they loved.
  11 As for Ephraim, their aglory will fly away like a bird
  No birth, no pregnancy and no conception!
  12 Though they bring up their children,
  Yet I will bereave them Iuntil not a man is left.
  Yes, awoe to them indeed when I depart from them!
  13 Ephraim, as I have seen,
  Is planted in a pleasant meadow like aTyre;
  But Ephraim will bring out his children for slaughter.
  14 Give them, O LORD—what will You give?
  Give them a amiscarrying womb and dry breasts.

  Because of the bwickedness of their deeds
  I will drive them out of My house!
  I will love them no more;
  All their princes are crebels.
  16 aEphraim is stricken, their root is dried up,
  They will bear bno fruit.
  Even though they bear children,
  I will slay the cprecious ones of their womb.

  Because they have anot listened to Him;
  And they will be bwanderers among the nations.

The distress and captivity of Israel for their sins and idolatry.

1 ¶ Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as [other] people: for thou hast gone a whoring from thy God, thou hast loved a reward upon every cornfloor. 2 The floor and the winepress shall not feed them, and the new wine shall fail in her. 3 They shall not dwell in the LORD'S land; but Ephraim shall return to Egypt, and they shall eat unclean [things] in Assyria. 4 They shall not offer wine [offerings] to the LORD, neither shall they be pleasing unto him: their sacrifices [shall be] unto them as the bread of mourners; all that eat thereof shall be polluted: for their bread for their soul shall not come into the house of the LORD. 5 What will ye do in the solemn day, and in the day of the feast of the LORD? 6 For, lo, they are gone because of destruction: Egypt shall gather them up, Memphis shall bury them: the pleasant [places] for their silver, nettles shall possess them: thorns [shall be] in their tabernacles. 7 The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; Israel shall know [it]: the prophet [is] a fool, the spiritual man [is] mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred. 8 The watchman of Ephraim [was] with my God: [but] the prophet [is] a snare of a fowler in all his ways, [and] hatred in the house of his God. 9 They have deeply corrupted [themselves], as in the days of Gibeah: [therefore] he will remember their iniquity, he will visit their sins. 10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: [but] they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto [that] shame; and [their] abominations were according as they loved. 11 [As for] Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception. 12 Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, [that there shall] not [be] a man [left]: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them! 13 Ephraim, as I saw Tyrus, [is] planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer. 14 Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. 15 All their wickedness [is] in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes [are] revolters. 16 Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay [even] the beloved [fruit] of their womb. 17 My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken unto him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations.
