Hosea 8:4-7,11-13


4 They made kings, but not through me;
   they set up princes, but without my knowledge.
With their silver and gold they made idols
   for their own destruction.
5 Your calf is rejected, O Samaria.
   My anger burns against them.
How long will they be incapable of innocence?
6   For it is from Israel,
an artisan made it;
   it is not God.
The calf of Samaria
   shall be broken to pieces.*


7 For they sow the wind,
   and they shall reap the whirlwind.
The standing grain has no heads,
   it shall yield no meal;
if it were to yield,
   foreigners would devour it.
11 When Ephraim multiplied altars to expiate sin,
   they became to him altars for sinning.
12 Though I write for him the multitude of my instructions,
   they are regarded as a strange thing.
13 Though they offer choice sacrifices,*
   though they eat flesh,
   the Lord does not accept them.
Now he will remember their iniquity,
   and punish their sins;
   they shall return to Egypt.
