Hosea 13
New Living Translation

The Lord’s Anger against Israel

13When the tribe of Ephraim spoke, the people shook with fear, for that tribe was important in Israel. But the people of Ephraim sinned by worshiping Baal and thus sealed their destruction.H669H1696H7578H5375H3478H816H1168H4191 2Now they continue to sin by making silver idols, images shaped skillfully with human hands. “Sacrifice to these,” they cry, “and kiss the calf idols!”H2398H3254H6213H4541H3701H6091H8394H4639H2796H559H120H2076H5401H5695 3Therefore, they will disappear like the morning mist, like dew in the morning sun, like chaff blown by the wind, like smoke from a chimney.H1242H6051H7925H2919H1980H4671H5590H1637H6227H699 4“I have been the Lord your God ever since I brought you out of Egypt. You must acknowledge no God but me, for there is no other savior.H3068H430H776H4714H3045H430H2108H3467H1115 5I took care of you in the wilderness, in that dry and thirsty land.H3045H4057H776H8514 6But when you had eaten and were satisfied, you became proud and forgot me.H4830H7646H7646H3820H7311H7911 7So now I will attack you like a lion, like a leopard that lurks along the road.H7826H5246H1870H7789 8Like a bear whose cubs have been taken away, I will tear out your heart. I will devour you like a hungry lioness and mangle you like a wild animal.H6298H1677H7909H7167H5458H3820H398H3833H7704H2416H1234 9“You are about to be destroyed, O Israel - yes, by me, your only helper.H3478H7843H5828 10Now where is your king? Let him save you! Where are all the leaders of the land, the king and the officials you demanded of me?H165H4428H645H3467H5892H8199H559H5414H4428H8269 11In my anger I gave you kings, and in my fury I took them away.H5414H4428H639H3947H5678 12“Ephraim’s guilt has been collected, and his sin has been stored up for punishment.H5771H669H6887H2403H6845 13Pain has come to the people like the pain of childbirth, but they are like a child who resists being born. The moment of birth has arrived, but they stay in the womb!H2256H3205H935H2450H1121H5975H6256H4866H1121 14“Should I ransom them from the grave? Should I redeem them from death? O death, bring on your terrors! O grave, bring on your plagues! For I will not take pity on them.H6299H3027H7585H1350H4194H4194H165H1698H7585H165H6987H5164H5641H5869 15Ephraim was the most fruitful of all his brothers, but the east wind - a blast from the Lord - will arise in the desert. All their flowing springs will run dry, and all their wells will disappear. Every precious thing they own will be plundered and carried away.H6500H251H6921H935H7307H3068H5927H4057H4726H954H4599H2717H8154H214H2532H3627 16The people of Samaria must bear the consequences of their guilt because they rebelled against their God. They will be killed by an invading army, their little ones dashed to death against the ground, their pregnant women ripped open by swords.”H8111H816H4784H430H5307H2719H5768H7376H2030H1234
