Hosea 12

A reproof of Ephraim, Judah, and Jacob.

Hosea 12:1 Ephraim feedeth on the wind, and followeth the burning heat: all the day long he multiplied lies and desolation: and he hath made a covenant with the Assyrians, and carried oil into Egypt. Hosea 12:2 Therefore there is a judgment of the Lord with Juda, and a visitation for Jacob: he will render to him according to his ways, and according to his devices.

By former favours he exhorteth to repentance.

Hosea 12:3 In the womb he supplanted his brother: and by his strength he had success with an angel. Hosea 12:4 And he prevailed over the angel, and was strengthened: he wept, and made supplication to him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spoke with us. Hosea 12:5 Even the Lord God of hosts, the Lord is his memorial. Hosea 12:6 Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and hope in thy God always.

Ephraim's sins provoke God.

Hosea 12:7 He is like Chanaan, there is a deceitful balance in his hand, he hath loved oppression. Hosea 12:8 And Ephraim said: But yet I am become rich, I have found me an idol: all my labours shall not find me the iniquity that I have committed. Hosea 12:9 And I that am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt, will yet cause thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the feast. Hosea 12:10 And I have spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and I have used similitudes by the ministry of the prophets. Hosea 12:11 If Galaad be an idol, then in vain were they in Galgal offering sacrifices with bullocks: for their altars also are as heaps in the furrows of the field. Hosea 12:12 Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and was a keeper for a wife. Hosea 12:13 But the Lord by a prophet brought Israel out of Egypt: and he was preserved by a prophet. Hosea 12:14 Ephraim hath provoked me to wrath with his bitterness, and his blood shall come upon him, and his Lord will render his reproach unto him.
