Young's Literal Translation

Hosea 12

A reproof of Ephraim, Judah, and Jacob.

Hosea 12:1 Ephraim is enjoying wind, And is pursuing an east wind, All the day lying and spoiling he multiplieth, And a covenant with Asshur they make, And oil to Egypt is carried. Hosea 12:2 And a controversy hath Jehovah with Judah, To lay a charge on Jacob according to his ways, According to his doings He returneth to him.

By former favours he exhorteth to repentance.

Hosea 12:3 In the womb he took his brother by the heel, And by his strength he was a prince with God, Hosea 12:4 Yea, he is a prince unto the Messenger, And he overcometh [by] weeping, And he maketh supplication to Him, At Bethel He doth find him, And there He doth speak with us, Hosea 12:5 Even Jehovah, God of the Hosts, Jehovah [is] His memorial. Hosea 12:6 And thou, through thy God, dost turn, Kindness and judgment keep thou, And wait on thy God continually.

Ephraim's sins provoke God.

Hosea 12:7 Canaan! in his hand [are] balances of deceit! To oppress he hath loved. Hosea 12:8 And Ephraim saith: 'Surely I have become rich, I have found wealth for myself, All my labours—they find not against me iniquity that [is] sin.' Hosea 12:9 And I—Jehovah thy God from the land of Egypt, Again do I turn thee back into tents, As in the days of the appointed time. Hosea 12:10 And I have spoken unto the prophets, And I have multiplied vision, And by the hand of the prophets I use similes. Hosea 12:11 Surely Gilead [is] iniquity, Only, vanity they have been, In Gilead bullocks they have sacrificed, Also their altars [are] as heaps, on the furrows of a field. Hosea 12:12 And Jacob doth flee to the country of Aram, And Israel doth serve for a wife, Yea, for a wife he hath kept watch. Hosea 12:13 And by a prophet hath Jehovah brought up Israel out of Egypt, And by a prophet it hath been watched. Hosea 12:14 Ephraim hath provoked most bitterly, And his blood on himself he leaveth, And his reproach turn back to him doth his Lord!
