Hosea 8:11-14, 10:1-2


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.
14 Israel has forgotten his Maker,
   and built palaces;
and Judah has multiplied fortified cities;
   but I will send a fire upon his cities,
   and it shall devour his strongholds.

Israel’s Sin and Captivity

10Israel is a luxuriant vine
   that yields its fruit.
The more his fruit increased
   the more altars he built;
as his country improved,
   he improved his pillars.
2 Their heart is false;
   now they must bear their guilt.
The Lord * will break down their altars,
   and destroy their pillars.
