The Bible - Hosea 4
1 - Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
2 - By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
3 - Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
4 - Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.
5 - Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.
6 - My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
7 - As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
8 - They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.
9 - And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
10 - For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the LORD.
11 - Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.
12 - My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.
13 - They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.
14 - I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.
15 - Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Bethaven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.
16 - For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
17 - Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.
18 - Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.
19 - The wind hath bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
