New Living Translation

Israel’s Love for Wickedness

7“I want to heal Israel, but its sins are too great. Samaria is filled with liars. Thieves are on the inside and bandits on the outside!H7495H3478H5771H669H1540H7451H8111H6466H8267H1590H935H1416H6584H2351 2Its people don’t realize that I am watching them. Their sinful deeds are all around them, and I see them all.H559H3824H2142H7451H4611H5437H6440 3“The people entertain the king with their wickedness, and the princes laugh at their lies.H4428H8055H7451H8269H3585 4They are all adulterers, always aflame with lust. They are like an oven that is kept hot while the baker is kneading the dough.H5003H8574H1197H644H7673H5782H3888H1217H2556 5On royal holidays, the princes get drunk with wine, carousing with those who mock them.H3117H4428H8269H2470H2534H3196H4900H3027H3945 6Their hearts are like an oven blazing with intrigue. Their plot smolders through the night, and in the morning it breaks out like a raging fire.H7126H3820H8574H693H644H3463H3915H1242H1197H3852H784 7Burning like an oven, they consume their leaders. They kill their kings one after another, and no one cries to me for help.H2552H8574H398H8199H4428H5307H7121 8“The people of Israel mingle with godless foreigners, making themselves as worthless as a half-baked cake!H669H1101H5971H669H5692H2015 9Worshiping foreign gods has sapped their strength, but they don’t even know it. Their hair is gray, but they don’t realize they’re old and weak.H2114H398H3581H3045H7872H2236H3045 10Their arrogance testifies against them, yet they don’t return to the Lord their God or even try to find him.H1347H3478H6030H6440H7725H3068H430H1245 11“The people of Israel have become like silly, witless doves, first calling to Egypt, then flying to Assyria for help.H669H6601H3123H3820H7121H4714H1980H804 12But as they fly about, I will throw my net over them and bring them down like a bird from the sky. I will punish them for all the evil they do.H3212H6566H7568H3381H5775H8064H3256H5712H8088 13“What sorrow awaits those who have deserted me! Let them die, for they have rebelled against me. I wanted to redeem them, but they have told lies about me.H188H5074H7701H6586H6299H1696H3577 14They do not cry out to me with sincere hearts. Instead, they sit on their couches and wail. They cut themselves, begging foreign gods for grain and new wine, and they turn away from me.H2199H3820H3213H4904H1481H1715H8492H5493 15I trained them and made them strong, yet now they plot evil against me.H3256H2388H2220H2803H7451 16They look everywhere except to the Most High. They are as useless as a crooked bow. Their leaders will be killed by their enemies because of their insolence toward me. Then the people of Egypt will laugh at them.H7725H5920H7423H7198H8269H5307H2719H2195H3956H2097H3933H776H4714
