Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:1 - Hear H8085 the word H1697 of the LORD, H3068 ye children H1121 of Israel: H3478 for the LORD H3068 hath a controversy H7379 with the inhabitants H3427 of the land, H776 because there is no truth, H571 nor mercy, H2617 nor knowledge H1847 of God H430 in the land. H776

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:2 - By swearing, H422 and lying, H3584 and killing, H7523 and stealing, H1589 and committing adultery, H5003 they break out, H6555 and blood H1818 toucheth H5060 blood. H1818

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:3 - Therefore shall the land H776 mourn, H56 and every one that dwelleth H3427 therein shall languish, H535 with the beasts H2416 of the field, H7704 and with the fowls H5775 of heaven; H8064 yea, the fishes H1709 of the sea H3220 also shall be taken away. H622

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:4 - Yet let no man H376 strive, H7378 nor reprove H3198 another: H376 for thy people H5971 are as they that strive H7378 with the priest. H3548

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:5 - Therefore shalt thou fall H3782 in the day, H3117 and the prophet H5030 also shall fall H3782 with thee in the night, H3915 and I will destroy H1820 thy mother. H517

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:6 - My people H5971 are destroyed H1820 for lack of knowledge: H1847 because thou hast rejected H3988 knowledge, H1847 I will also reject H3988 thee, that thou shalt be no priest H3547 to me: seeing thou hast forgotten H7911 the law H8451 of thy God, H430 I will also forget H7911 thy children. H1121

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:7 - As they were increased, H7230 so they sinned H2398 against me: therefore will I change H4171 their glory H3519 into shame. H7036

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:10 - For they shall eat, H398 and not have enough: H7646 they shall commit whoredom, H2181 and shall not increase: H6555 because they have left off H5800 to take heed H8104 to the LORD. H3068

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:11 - Whoredom H2184 and wine H3196 and new wine H8492 take away H3947 the heart. H3820

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:12 - My people H5971 ask H7592 counsel at their stocks, H6086 and their staff H4731 declareth H5046 unto them: for the spirit H7307 of whoredoms H2183 hath caused them to err, H8582 and they have gone a whoring H2181 from under their God. H430

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:13 - They sacrifice H2076 upon the tops H7218 of the mountains, H2022 and burn incense H6999 upon the hills, H1389 under oaks H437 and poplars H3839 and elms, H424 because the shadow H6738 thereof is good: H2896 therefore your daughters H1323 shall commit whoredom, H2181 and your spouses H3618 shall commit adultery. H5003

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:14 - I will not punish H6485 your daughters H1323 when they commit whoredom, H2181 nor your spouses H3618 when they commit adultery: H5003 for themselves are separated H6504 with whores, H2181 and they sacrifice H2076 with harlots: H6948 therefore the people H5971 that doth not understand H995 shall fall. H3832

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:15 - Though thou, Israel, H3478 play the harlot, H2181 yet let not Judah H3063 offend; H816 and come H935 not ye unto Gilgal, H1537 neither go ye up H5927 to Bethaven, H1007 nor swear, H7650 The LORD H3068 liveth. H2416

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 4:16 - For Israel H3478 slideth back H5637 as a backsliding H5637 heifer: H6510 now the LORD H3068 will feed H7462 them as a lamb H3532 in a large place. H4800
