Hosea 7:8-16


8 Ephraim mixes himself with the peoples;
   Ephraim is a cake not turned.
9 Foreigners devour his strength,
   but he does not know it;
grey hairs are sprinkled upon him,
   but he does not know it.
10 Israel’s pride testifies against* him;
   yet they do not return to the Lord their God,
   or seek him, for all this.

Futile Reliance on the Nations


11 Ephraim has become like a dove,
   silly and without sense;
   they call upon Egypt, they go to Assyria.
12 As they go, I will cast my net over them;
   I will bring them down like birds of the air;
   I will discipline them according to the report made to their assembly.*
13 Woe to them, for they have strayed from me!
   Destruction to them, for they have rebelled against me!
I would redeem them,
   but they speak lies against me.


14 They do not cry to me from the heart,
   but they wail upon their beds;
they gash themselves for grain and wine;
   they rebel against me.
15 It was I who trained and strengthened their arms,
   yet they plot evil against me.
16 They turn to that which does not profit;*
   they have become like a defective bow;
their officials shall fall by the sword
   because of the rage of their tongue.
So much for their babbling in the land of Egypt.
