Hosea 7 (WEBP)

[1] When I would heal Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim is uncovered, also the wickedness of Samaria; for they commit falsehood, and the thief enters in, and the gang of robbers ravages outside.
[2] They don’t consider in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness. Now their own deeds have engulfed them. They are before my face.
[3] They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies.
[4] They are all adulterers. They are burning like an oven that the baker stops stirring, from the kneading of the dough, until it is leavened.
[5] On the day of our king, the princes made themselves sick with the heat of wine. He joined his hand with mockers.
[6] For they have prepared their heart like an oven, while they lie in wait. Their anger smolders all night. In the morning it burns as a flaming fire.
[7] They are all hot as an oven, and devour their judges. All their kings have fallen. There is no one among them who calls to me.
[8] Ephraim mixes himself among the nations. Ephraim is a pancake not turned over.
[9] Strangers have devoured his strength, and he doesn’t realize it. Indeed, gray hairs are here and there on him, and he doesn’t realize it.
[10] The pride of Israel testifies to his face; yet they haven’t returned to Yahweh their God, nor sought him, for all this.
[11] “Ephraim is like an easily deceived dove, without understanding. They call to Egypt. They go to Assyria.
[12] When they go, I will spread my net on them. I will bring them down like the birds of the sky. I will chastise them, as their congregation has heard.
[13] Woe to them! For they have wandered from me. Destruction to them! For they have trespassed against me. Though I would redeem them, yet they have spoken lies against me.
[14] They haven’t cried to me with their heart, but they howl on their beds. They assemble themselves for grain and new wine. They turn away from me.
[15] Though I have taught and strengthened their arms, yet they plot evil against me.
[16] They return, but not to the Most High. They are like a faulty bow. Their princes will fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue. This will be their derision in the land of Egypt.

Hosea 7 (KJVS)

[1] When I would have healed H7495 (8800) Israel H3478, then the iniquity H5771 of Ephraim H669 was discovered H1540 (8738), and the wickedness H7451 of Samaria H8111: for they commit H6466 (8804) falsehood H8267; and the thief H1590 cometh in H935 (8799), [and] the troop H1416 of robbers spoileth H6584 (8804) without H2351.
[2] And they consider H559 (8799) not in their hearts H3824 [that] I remember H2142 (8804) all their wickedness H7451: now their own doings H4611 have beset them about H5437 (8804); they are before my face H6440.
[3] They make the king H4428 glad H8055 (8762) with their wickedness H7451, and the princes H8269 with their lies H3585.
[4] They [are] all adulterers H5003 (8764), as an oven H8574 heated H1197 (8802) by the baker H644 (8802), [who] ceaseth H7673 (8799) from raising H5782 (8800) after he hath kneaded H3888 (8800) the dough H1217, until it be leavened H2556 (8800).
[5] In the day H3117 of our king H4428 the princes H8269 have made [him] sick H2470 (8689) with bottles H2534 of wine H3196; he stretched out H4900 (8804) his hand H3027 with scorners H3945 (8802).
[6] For they have made ready H7126 (8765) their heart H3820 like an oven H8574, whiles they lie in wait H693 (8800): their baker H644 (8802) sleepeth H3463 all the night H3915; in the morning H1242 it burneth H1197 (8802) as a flaming H3852 fire H784.
[7] They are all hot H2552 (8735) as an oven H8574, and have devoured H398 (8804) their judges H8199 (8802); all their kings H4428 are fallen H5307 (8804): [there is] none among them that calleth H7121 (8802) unto me.
[8] Ephraim H669, he hath mixed H1101 (8704) himself among the people H5971; Ephraim H669 is a cake H5692 not turned H2015 (8803).
[9] Strangers H2114 (8801) have devoured H398 (8804) his strength H3581, and he knoweth H3045 (8804) [it] not: yea, gray hairs H7872 are here and there H2236 (8804) upon him, yet he knoweth H3045 (8804) not.
[10] And the pride H1347 of Israel H3478 testifieth H6030 (8804) to his face H6440: and they do not return H7725 (8804) to the LORD H3068 their God H430, nor seek H1245 (8765) him for all this.
[11] Ephraim H669 also is like a silly H6601 (8802) dove H3123 without heart H3820: they call H7121 (8804) to Egypt H4714, they go H1980 (8804) to Assyria H804.
[12] When they shall go H3212 (8799), I will spread H6566 (8799) my net H7568 upon them; I will bring them down H3381 (8686) as the fowls H5775 of the heaven H8064; I will chastise H3256 (8686) them, as their congregation H5712 hath heard H8088.
[13] Woe H188 unto them! for they have fled H5074 (8804) from me: destruction H7701 unto them! because they have transgressed H6586 (8804) against me: though I have redeemed H6299 (8799) them, yet they have spoken H1696 (8765) lies H3577 against me.
[14] And they have not cried H2199 (8804) unto me with their heart H3820, when they howled H3213 (8686) upon their beds H4904: they assemble H1481 (8709) themselves for corn H1715 and wine H8492, [and] they rebel H5493 (8799) against me.
[15] Though I have bound H3256 (8765) [and] strengthened H2388 (8765) their arms H2220, yet do they imagine H2803 (8762) mischief H7451 against me.
[16] They return H7725 (8799), [but] not to the most High H5920: they are like a deceitful H7423 bow H7198: their princes H8269 shall fall H5307 (8799) by the sword H2719 for the rage H2195 of their tongue H3956: this H2097 [shall be] their derision H3933 in the land H776 of Egypt H4714.

Young’s Literal Translation

Hosea 7 (YLT)

[1] ‘When I give healing to Israel, Then revealed is the iniquity of Ephraim, And the wickedness of Samaria, For they have wrought falsehood, And a thief doth come in, Stript off hath a troop in the street,
[2] And they do not say to their heart, That all their evil I have remembered, Now compassed them have their doings, Over-against My face they have been.
[3] With their wickedness they make glad a king, And with their lies-princes.
[4] All of them are adulterers, Like a burning oven of a baker, He ceaseth from stirring up after kneading the dough, till its leavening.
[5] A day of our king! Princes have polluted themselves with the poison of wine, He hath drawn out his hand with scorners.
[6] For they have drawn near, As an oven is their heart, In their lying in wait all the night sleep doth their baker, Morning! he is burning as a flaming fire.
[7] All of them are warm as an oven, And they have devoured their judges, All their kings have fallen, There is none calling unto Me among them.
[8] Ephraim! among peoples he mixeth himself, Ephraim hath been a cake unturned.
[9] Devoured have strangers his power, And he hath not known, Also old age hath sprinkled itself on him, And he hath not known.
[10] And humbled hath been the excellency of Israel to his face, And they have not turned back unto Jehovah their God, Nor have they sought Him for all this.
[11] And Ephraim is as a simple dove without heart, Egypt they called on-to Asshur they have gone.
[12] When they go I spread over them My net, As the fowl of the heavens I bring them down, I chastise them as their company hath heard.
[13] Woe to them, for they wandered from Me, Destruction to them, for they transgressed against Me, And I-I ransom them, and they have spoken lies against Me,
[14] And have not cried unto Me with their heart, but howl on their beds, For corn and new wine they assemble themselves, They turn aside against Me.
[15] And I instructed-I strengthened their arms, And concerning Me they think evil!
[16] They turn back-not to the Most High, They have been as a deceitful bow, Fall by sword do their princes, From the insolence of their tongue, This is their derision in the land of Egypt!
