Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:1 - Don't rejoice, Yisra'el, to jubilation like the nations; For you were unfaithful to your God. You love the wages of a prostitute at every grain threshing floor.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:2 - The threshing floor and the winepress won't feed them, And the new wine will fail her.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:3 - They won't dwell in the LORD's land; But Efrayim will return to Mitzrayim, And they will eat unclean food in Ashshur.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:4 - They won't pour out wine offerings to the LORD, Neither will they be pleasing to him. Their sacrifices will be to them like the bread of mourners; All who eat of it will be polluted; For their bread will be for their appetite. It will not come into the house of the LORD.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:5 - What will you do in the day of solemn assembly, And in the day of the feast of the LORD?
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:6 - For, behold, they have gone away from destruction. Mitzrayim will gather them up. Mof will bury them. Nettles will possess their pleasant things of silver. Thorns will be in their tents.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:7 - The days of visitation have come. The days of reckoning have come. Yisra'el will consider the prophet to be a fool, And the man who is inspired to be insane, Because of the abundance of your sins, And because your hostility is great.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:8 - A prophet watches over Efrayim with my God. A fowler's snare is on all of his paths, And hostility in the house of his God.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:9 - They have deeply corrupted themselves, As in the days of Gevah. He will remember their iniquity. He will punish them for their sins.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:10 - I found Yisra'el like grapes in the wilderness. I saw your fathers as the first ripe in the fig tree at its first season; But they came to Ba`al-Pe`or, and consecrated themselves to the shameful thing, And became abominable like that which they loved.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:11 - As for Efrayim, their glory will fly away like a bird. There will be no birth, none with child, and no conception.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:12 - Though they bring up their children, Yet I will bereave them, so that not a man shall be left. Indeed, woe also to them when I depart from them!
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:13 - Efrayim, like I have seen Tzor, is planted in a pleasant place; But Efrayim will bring out his children to the killer.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:14 - Give them -- LORD what will you give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:15 - "All their wickedness is in Gilgal; For there I hated them. Because of the wickedness of their deeds I will drive them out of my house! I will love them no more. All their princes are rebels.
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:16 - Efrayim is struck. Their root has dried up. They will bear no fruit. Even though they bring forth, yet I will kill the beloved ones of their womb."
Unchecked Copy BoxHos 9:17 - My God will cast them away, because they did not listen to him; And they will be wanderers among the nations.
