Young's Literal Translation

Hosea 8

Destruction is threatened for their impiety,

Hosea 8:1 'Unto thy mouth—a trumpet, As an eagle against the house of Jehovah, Because they transgressed My covenant, And against My law they have rebelled. Hosea 8:2 To Me they cry, 'My God, we—Israel—have known Thee.' Hosea 8:3 Cast off good hath Israel, an enemy pursueth him. Hosea 8:4 They have made kings, and not by Me, They have made princes, and I have not known, Their silver and their gold they have made to them idols, So that they are cut off.

and idolatry,

Hosea 8:5 Cast off hath thy calf, O Samaria, Burned hath Mine anger against them, Till when are they not capable of purity? Hosea 8:6 For even it [is] of Israel; an artificer made it, And it [is] not God, For the calf of Samaria is fragments! Hosea 8:7 For wind they sow, and a hurricane they reap, Stalk it hath none—a shoot not yielding grain, If so be it yield—strangers do swallow it up. Hosea 8:8 Israel hath been swallowed up, Now they have been among nations, As a vessel in which is no delight. Hosea 8:9 For they—they have gone up [to] Asshur, A wild ass alone by himself [is] Ephraim, They have hired lovers! Hosea 8:10 Also though they hire among nations, Now I gather them, and they are pained a little, From the burden of a king of princes. Hosea 8:11 Because Ephraim did multiply altars to sin, They have been to him altars to sin.

and impiety.

Hosea 8:12 I write for him numerous things of My law, As a strange thing they have been reckoned. Hosea 8:13 The sacrifices of Mine offerings! They sacrifice flesh, and they eat, Jehovah hath not accepted them, Now doth He remember their iniquity, And inspect their sin, They—[to] Egypt they turn back. Hosea 8:14 And forget doth Israel his Maker, and buildeth temples, And Judah hath multiplied cities of defence, And I have sent a fire into his cities, And it hath consumed their palaces!
