Young's Literal Translation

Hosea 13

Ephraim's glory, by reason of idolatry, vanished.

Hosea 13:1 When Ephraim speaketh tremblingly, He hath been lifted up in Israel, When he becometh guilty in Baal he dieth. Hosea 13:2 And now do they add to sin, And make to them a molten image of their silver, By their own understanding—idols, A work of artisans—all of it, Of them they say, who [are] sacrificers among men, 'The calves let them kiss.' Hosea 13:3 Therefore they are as a cloud of the morning, And as dew, rising early, going away, As chaff tossed about out of a floor, And as smoke out of a window. Hosea 13:4 And I [am] Jehovah thy God from the land of Egypt, And a God besides Me thou dost not know, And a Saviour—there is none save Me.

God's anger for their unkindness.

Hosea 13:5 I—I have known thee in a wilderness, In a land of droughts. Hosea 13:6 According to their feedings they are satiated, They have been satiated, And their heart is lifted up, Therefore they have forgotten Me, Hosea 13:7 And I am to them as a lion, As a leopard by the way I look out. Hosea 13:8 I do meet them as a bereaved bear, And I rend the enclosure of their heart.

A promise of God's mercy.

Hosea 13:9 And I consume them there as a lioness, A beast of the field doth rend them. Hosea 13:10 Thou hast destroyed thyself, O Israel, But in Me [is] thy help, Where [is] thy king now—And he doth save thee in all thy cities? And thy judges of whom thou didst say, 'Give to me a king and heads?' Hosea 13:11 I give to thee a king in Mine anger, And I take away in My wrath. Hosea 13:12 Bound up [is] the iniquity of Ephraim, Hidden [is] his sin, Hosea 13:13 Pangs of a travailing woman come to him, He [is] a son not wise, For he remaineth not the time for the breaking forth of sons. Hosea 13:14 From the hand of Sheol I do ransom them, From death I redeem them, Where [is] thy plague, O death? Where thy destruction, O Sheol? Repentance is hid from Mine eyes.

A judgment for rebellion.

Hosea 13:15 Though he among brethren produceth fruit, Come in doth an east wind, a wind of Jehovah, From a wilderness it is coming up, And it drieth up his fountain, And become dry doth his spring, It—it spoileth a treasure—every desirable vessel. Hosea 13:16 Become desolate doth Samaria, Because she hath rebelled against her God, By sword they do fall, Their sucklings are dashed in pieces, And its pregnant ones are ripped up!
