Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Hosea 12

A reproof of Ephraim, Judah, and Jacob.

Hosea 12:1 Ephraim, feedeth on wind, and pursueth the east wind, all the day, falsehood and force, doth he magnify,—and, a covenant with Assyria, would they solemnize, and, oil into Egypt, must be borne along. Hosea 12:2 But, a controversy, hath Yahweh with Judah,—so that he may bring punishment on Jacob, according to his ways, According to his doings, repay him.

By former favours he exhorteth to repentance.

Hosea 12:3 In the womb, took he his brother by the heel; and, in his manly vigour, strove he with God: Hosea 12:4 Yea he strove against a Messenger, and prevailed, he wept, and made supplication unto him,—At Bethel, he found him, and, there, he spake with us; Hosea 12:5 And, Yahweh, is God of host,—Yahweh, is his memorial. Hosea 12:6 Thou, therefore, by thy God, shalt return,—lovingkindness and justice, do thou keep, so wait thou for thy God, continually.

Ephraim's sins provoke God.

Hosea 12:7 A trafficker! in his hand, are balances of deceit, to oppress, he loveth. Hosea 12:8 So then Ephraim said, Surely I have gotten me riches, I have found wealth for myself,—in all my toils, they cannot find in me perversity which is sin. Hosea 12:9 But, I, Yahweh, have been thy God, from the land of Egypt,—I will yet make thee dwell in tents, as in the days of appointed meeting. Hosea 12:10 And I will lay my word upon the prophets, yea, I myself, have magnified, vision,—and, by the hand of the prophets, will I use similitudes. Hosea 12:11 If, Gilead, is in sorrow, surely false, have they been, In Gilgal, have they sacrificed, bullocks,—their very altars, shall become as heaps upon the furrows of the field. Hosea 12:12 When Jacob fled to the country of Syria, then Israel served for a wife, and, for a wife, he watched over a flock. Hosea 12:13 And, by a prophet, Yahweh, brought up, Israel out of Egypt,—and, by a prophet, was he watched over. Hosea 12:14 Ephraim hath provoked, very bitterly,—his own blood, therefore, upon him, will he leave, and, his reproach, shall his Lord, bring back to him.
