The People's Apostasy Rebuked

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:1 - Hear this, O priests!
Give heed, O house of Israel!
Listen, O house of the king!
For the judgment applies to you,
For you have been a snare at Mizpah
And a net spread out on Tabor.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:2 - The revolters have [fn]gone deep in depravity,
But I will chastise all of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:3 - I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from Me;
For now, O Ephraim, you have played the harlot,
Israel has defiled itself.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:4 - Their deeds will not allow them
To return to their God.
For a spirit of harlotry is within them,
And they do not know the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:5 - Moreover, the pride of Israel testifies against him,
And Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity;
Judah also has stumbled with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:6 - They will go with their flocks and herds
To seek the LORD, but they will not find Him;
He has withdrawn from them.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:7 - They have dealt treacherously against the LORD,
For they have borne [fn]illegitimate children.
Now the new moon will devour them with their [fn]land.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:8 - Blow the horn in Gibeah,
The trumpet in Ramah.
Sound an alarm at Beth-aven:
“Behind you, Benjamin!”

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:9 - Ephraim will become a desolation in the day of rebuke;
Among the tribes of Israel I declare what is sure.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:10 - The princes of Judah have become like those who move a boundary;
On them I will pour out My wrath like water.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:11 - Ephraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment,
Because he was determined to [fn]follow man’s command.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:12 - Therefore I am like a moth to Ephraim
And like rottenness to the house of Judah.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:13 - When Ephraim saw his sickness,
And Judah his [fn]wound,
Then Ephraim went to Assyria
And sent to [fn]King Jareb.
But he is unable to heal you,
Or to cure you of your [fn]wound.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:14 - For I will be like a lion to Ephraim
And like a young lion to the house of Judah.
I, even I, will tear to pieces and go away,
I will carry away, and there will be none to deliver.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 5:15 - I will go away and return to My place
Until they [fn]acknowledge their guilt and seek My face;
In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.

Or, waded deep in slaughter
Literally: strange
Literally: portions
Or, with some ancient versions, follow nothingness
Or, ulcer
Or, the avenging king or the great king
Or, bear their punishment
