Chapter 7 :: Hosea

Hosea 7:1  -  When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, and the troop of robbers spoileth without.

Hosea 7:2  -  And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before my face.

Hosea 7:3  -  They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies.

Hosea 7:4  -  They are all adulterers, as an oven heated by the baker, who ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough, until it be leavened.

Hosea 7:5  -  In the day of our king the princes have made him sick with bottles of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners.

Hosea 7:6  -  For they have made ready their heart like an oven, whiles they lie in wait: their baker sleepeth all the night; in the morning it burneth as a flaming fire.

Hosea 7:7  -  They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen: there is none among them that calleth unto me.

Hosea 7:8  -  Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.

Hosea 7:9  -  Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not.

Hosea 7:10  -  And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek him for all this.

Hosea 7:11  -  Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.

Hosea 7:12  -  When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard.

Hosea 7:13  -  Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me.

Hosea 7:14  -  And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me.

Hosea 7:15  -  Though I have bound and strengthened their arms, yet do they imagine mischief against me.

Hosea 7:16  -  They return, but not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.
