Hosea 7 :: New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:1 - When I would heal Israel,
The iniquity of Ephraim is uncovered,
And the evil deeds of Samaria,
For they deal falsely;
The thief enters in,
Bandits raid outside,

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:2 - And they do not [fn]consider in their hearts
That I remember all their wickedness.
Now their deeds are all around them;
They are before My face.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:3 - With their wickedness they make the king glad,
And the princes with their lies.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:4 - They are all adulterers,
Like an oven heated by the baker
Who ceases to stir up the fire
From the kneading of the dough until it is leavened.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:5 - On the [fn]day of our king, the princes became sick with the heat of wine;
He stretched out his hand with scoffers,

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:6 - For their hearts are like an oven
As they approach their [fn]plotting;
Their [fn]anger [fn]smolders all night,
In the morning it burns like a flaming fire.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:7 - All of them are hot like an oven,
And they consume their rulers;
All their kings have fallen.
None of them calls on Me.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:8 - Ephraim mixes himself with the [fn]nations;
Ephraim has become a cake not turned.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:9 - Strangers devour his strength,
Yet he does not know it;
Gray hairs also are sprinkled on him,
Yet he does not know it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:10 - Though the pride of Israel testifies against him,
Yet they have not returned to the LORD their God,
Nor have they sought Him, for all this.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:11 - So Ephraim has become like a silly dove, without [fn]sense;
They call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:12 - When they go, I will spread My net over them;
I will bring them down like the birds of the sky.
I will chastise them in accordance with the [fn]proclamation to their assembly.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:13 - Woe to them, for they have strayed from Me!
Destruction is theirs, for they have rebelled against Me!
I would redeem them, but they speak lies against Me.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:14 - And they do not cry to Me from their heart
When they wail on their beds;
For the sake of grain and new wine they [fn]assemble themselves,
They turn away from Me.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:15 - Although I trained and strengthened their arms,
Yet they devise evil against Me.

Unchecked Copy BoxHos 7:16 - They turn, but not [fn]upward,
They are like a deceitful bow;
Their princes will fall by the sword
Because of the [fn]insolence of their tongue.
This will be their derision in the land of Egypt.
NASB Footnotes
Literally: say to their heart
I.e. a festive occasion
Literally: ambush
So with some ancient versions; M.T. baker
Literally: sleeps
Literally: peoples
Literally: heart
Literally: report
Or, with Gr and many ancient mss gash themselves
Or, possibly to the Most High
Literally: indignation; or cursing
