Hosea 5 (WEBP)

[1] “Listen to this, you priests! Listen, house of Israel, and give ear, house of the king! For the judgment is against you; for you have been a snare at Mizpah, and a net spread on Tabor.
[2] The rebels are deep in slaughter, but I discipline all of them.
[3] I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from me; for now, Ephraim, you have played the prostitute. Israel is defiled.
[4] Their deeds won’t allow them to turn to their God, for the spirit of prostitution is within them, and they don’t know Yahweh.
[5] The pride of Israel testifies to his face. Therefore Israel and Ephraim will stumble in their iniquity. Judah also will stumble with them.
[6] They will go with their flocks and with their herds to seek Yahweh, but they won’t find him. He has withdrawn himself from them.
[7] They are unfaithful to Yahweh; for they have borne illegitimate children. Now the new moon will devour them with their fields.
[8] “Blow the cornet in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah! Sound a battle cry at Beth Aven, behind you, Benjamin!
[9] Ephraim will become a desolation in the day of rebuke. Among the tribes of Israel, I have made known that which will surely be.
[10] The princes of Judah are like those who remove a landmark. I will pour out my wrath on them like water.
[11] Ephraim is oppressed, he is crushed in judgment, because he is intent in his pursuit of idols.
[12] Therefore I am to Ephraim like a moth, and to the house of Judah like rottenness.
[13] “When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah his wound, then Ephraim went to Assyria, and sent to King Jareb: but he is not able to heal you, neither will he cure you of your wound.
[14] For I will be to Ephraim like a lion, and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I myself will tear in pieces and go away. I will carry off, and there will be no one to deliver.
[15] I will go and return to my place, until they acknowledge their offense, and seek my face. In their affliction they will seek me earnestly.”

King James w/Strong’s #s

Hosea 5 (KJVS)

[1] Hear H8085 (8798) ye this, O priests H3548; and hearken H7181 (8685), ye house H1004 of Israel H3478; and give ye ear H238 (8685), O house H1004 of the king H4428; for judgment H4941 [is] toward you, because ye have been a snare H6341 on Mizpah H4709, and a net H7568 spread H6566 (8803) upon Tabor H8396.
[2] And the revolters H7846 are profound H6009 (8689) to make slaughter H7819 (8800), though I [have been] a rebuker H4148 of them all.
[3] I know H3045 (8804) Ephraim H669, and Israel H3478 is not hid H3582 (8738) from me: for now, O Ephraim H669, thou committest whoredom H2181 (8689), [and] Israel H3478 is defiled H2930 (8738).
[4] They will not frame H5414 (8799) their doings H4611 to turn H7725 (8800) unto their God H430: for the spirit H7307 of whoredoms H2183 [is] in the midst H7130 of them, and they have not known H3045 (8804) the LORD H3068.
[5] And the pride H1347 of Israel H3478 doth testify H6030 (8804) to his face H6440: therefore shall Israel H3478 and Ephraim H669 fall H3782 (8735) in their iniquity H5771; Judah H3063 also shall fall H3782 (8804) with them.
[6] They shall go H3212 (8799) with their flocks H6629 and with their herds H1241 to seek H1245 (8763) the LORD H3068; but they shall not find H4672 (8799) [him]; he hath withdrawn H2502 (8804) himself from them.
[7] They have dealt treacherously H898 (8804) against the LORD H3068: for they have begotten H3205 (8804) strange H2114 (8801) children H1121: now shall a month H2320 devour H398 (8799) them with their portions H2506.
[8] Blow H8628 (8798) ye the cornet H7782 in Gibeah H1390, [and] the trumpet H2689 in Ramah H7414: cry aloud H7321 (8685) [at] Bethaven H1007, after H310 thee, O Benjamin H1144.
[9] Ephraim H669 shall be desolate H8047 in the day H3117 of rebuke H8433: among the tribes H7626 of Israel H3478 have I made known H3045 (8689) that which shall surely be H539 (8737).
[10] The princes H8269 of Judah H3063 were like them that remove H5253 (8688) the bound H1366: [therefore] I will pour out H8210 (8799) my wrath H5678 upon them like water H4325.
[11] Ephraim H669 [is] oppressed H6231 (8803) [and] broken H7533 (8803) in judgment H4941, because he willingly H2974 (8689) walked H1980 (8804) after H310 the commandment H6673.
[12] Therefore [will] I [be] unto Ephraim H669 as a moth H6211, and to the house H1004 of Judah H3063 as rottenness H7538.
[13] When Ephraim H669 saw H7200 (8799) his sickness H2483, and Judah H3063 [saw] his wound H4205, then went H3212 (8799) Ephraim H669 to the Assyrian H804, and sent H7971 (8799) to king H4428 Jareb H3377 (8677) H7378 (8799): yet could H3201 (8799) he not heal H7495 (8800) you, nor cure H1455 (8799) you of your wound H4205.
[14] For I [will be] unto Ephraim H669 as a lion H7826, and as a young lion H3715 to the house H1004 of Judah H3063: I, [even] I, will tear H2963 (8799) and go away H3212 (8799); I will take away H5375 (8799), and none shall rescue H5337 (8688) [him].
[15] I will go H3212 (8799) [and] return H7725 (8799) to my place H4725, till they acknowledge their offence H816 (8799), and seek H1245 (8765) my face H6440: in their affliction H6862 they will seek me early H7836 (8762).

Young’s Literal Translation

Hosea 5 (YLT)

[1] ‘Hear this, O priests, and attend, O house of Israel, And, O house of the king, give ear, For the judgment is for you, For, a snare ye have been on Mizpah, And a net spread out on Tabor.
[2] And to slaughter sinners have gone deep, And I am a fetter to them all.
[3] I have known Ephraim, And Israel hath not been hid from me, For now thou hast gone a-whoring, Ephraim, Defiled is Israel.
[4] They give not up their habitual doings, To turn back unto their God, For a spirit of whoredoms is in their midst, And Jehovah they have not known.
[5] And humbled hath been the excellency of Israel to his face, And Israel and Ephraim stumble by their iniquity, Stumbled also hath Judah with them.
[6] With their flock and with their herd, They go to seek Jehovah, and do not find, He hath withdrawn from them.
[7] Against Jehovah they dealt treacherously, For strange sons they have begotten, Now consume them doth a month with their portions.
[8] Blow ye a cornet in Gibeah, a trumpet in Ramah, Shout, O Beth-Aven, after thee, O Benjamin.
[9] Ephraim is for a desolation in a day of reproof, Among the tribes of Israel I have made known a sure thing.
[10] Princes of Judah have been as those removing a border, On them I do pour out as water My wrath.
[11] Oppressed is Ephraim, broken in judgment, When he pleased he went after the command.
[12] And I am as a moth to Ephraim, And as a rotten thing to the house of Judah.
[13] And see doth Ephraim his sickness, and Judah his wound, And Ephraim goeth unto Asshur, And sendeth unto a warlike king, And he is not able to give healing to you, Nor doth he remove from you a scar.
[14] For I am as a lion to Ephraim, And as a young lion to the house of Judah, I-I tear and go, I bear away, and there is no deliverer.
[15] I go-I turn back unto My place, Till that they are desolate, and have sought My face. In their distress they do seek Me speedily!’
