worshiping other gods on every threshing floor.

So now your harvests will be too small to feed you.
There will be no grapes for making new wine.

Instead, you will return to Egypt,
and in Assyria you will eat food
that is ceremonially unclean.

There you will make no offerings of wine to the LORD.
None of your sacrifices there will please him.

All who present such sacrifices will be defiled.
They may eat this food themselves,
but they may not offer it to the LORD.

How will you observe the LORD’s festivals?

Tools specific to Hos 9:6

Nettles will take over your treasures of silver;
thistles will invade your ruined homes.

Tools specific to Hos 9:7

Unchecked Copy Box Hos 9:7

The time of Israel’s punishment has come;
the day of payment is here.
Soon Israel will know this all too well.
Because of your great sin and hostility,

and the inspired men are fools!”

Tools specific to Hos 9:8

Unchecked Copy Box Hos 9:8

The prophet is a watchman over Israel[fn] for my God,
yet traps are laid for him wherever he goes.
He faces hostility even in the house of God.

The things my people do are as depraved
as what they did in Gibeah long ago.
God will not forget.
He will surely punish them for their sins.

Tools specific to Hos 9:10

Unchecked Copy Box Hos 9:10

The LORD says, “O Israel, when I first found you,
it was like finding fresh grapes in the desert.
When I saw your ancestors,
it was like seeing the first ripe figs of the season.
But then they deserted me for Baal-peor,
giving themselves to that shameful idol.
Soon they became vile,
as vile as the god they worshiped.

Tools specific to Hos 9:11

The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird,
for your children will not be born
or grow in the womb
or even be conceived.

Even if you do have children who grow up,
I will take them from you.
It will be a terrible day when I turn away
and leave you alone.

Unchecked Copy Box Hos 9:13

I have watched Israel become as beautiful as Tyre.
But now Israel will bring out her children for slaughter.”

Tools specific to Hos 9:14

O LORD, what should I request for your people?
I will ask for wombs that don’t give birth
and breasts that give no milk.

Tools specific to Hos 9:15

Unchecked Copy Box Hos 9:15

The LORD says, “All their wickedness began at Gilgal;
there I began to hate them.
I will drive them from my land
because of their evil actions.
I will love them no more
because all their leaders are rebels.

Tools specific to Hos 9:16

Unchecked Copy Box Hos 9:16

The people of Israel are struck down.
Their roots are dried up,
and they will bear no more fruit.
And if they give birth,
I will slaughter their beloved children.”

Tools specific to Hos 9:17

Unchecked Copy Box Hos 9:17

My God will reject the people of Israel
because they will not listen or obey.
They will be wanderers,
homeless among the nations.
