Hosea 8 (WEBP)

[1] “Put the trumpet to your lips! Something like an eagle is over Yahweh’s house, because they have broken my covenant and rebelled against my law.
[2] They cry to me, ‘My God, we, Israel, acknowledge you!’
[3] Israel has cast off that which is good. The enemy will pursue him.
[4] They have set up kings, but not by me. They have made princes, and I didn’t approve. Of their silver and their gold they have made themselves idols, that they may be cut off.
[5] Let Samaria throw out his calf idol! My anger burns against them! How long will it be until they are capable of purity?
[6] For this is even from Israel! The workman made it, and it is no God; indeed, the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.
[7] For they sow the wind, and they will reap the whirlwind. He has no standing grain. The stalk will yield no head. If it does yield, strangers will swallow it up.
[8] Israel is swallowed up. Now they are among the nations like a worthless thing.
[9] For they have gone up to Assyria, like a wild donkey wandering alone. Ephraim has hired lovers for himself.
[10] But although they sold themselves among the nations, I will now gather them; and they begin to waste away because of the oppression of the king of mighty ones.
[11] Because Ephraim has multiplied altars for sinning, they became for him altars for sinning.
[12] I wrote for him the many things of my law, but they were regarded as a strange thing.
[13] As for the sacrifices of my offerings, they sacrifice meat and eat it, but Yahweh doesn’t accept them. Now he will remember their iniquity, and punish their sins. They will return to Egypt.
[14] For Israel has forgotten his Maker and built palaces; and Judah has multiplied fortified cities; but I will send a fire on his cities, and it will devour its fortresses.”

Young’s Literal Translation

Hosea 8 (YLT)

[1] ‘Unto thy mouth-a trumpet, As an eagle against the house of Jehovah, Because they transgressed My covenant, And against My law they have rebelled.
[2] To Me they cry, ‘My God, we-Israel-have known Thee.’
[3] Cast off good hath Israel, an enemy pursueth him.
[4] They have made kings, and not by Me, They have made princes, and I have not known, Their silver and their gold they have made to them idols, So that they are cut off.
[5] Cast off hath thy calf, O Samaria, Burned hath Mine anger against them, Till when are they not capable of purity?
[6] For even it is of Israel; an artificer made it, And it is not God, For the calf of Samaria is fragments!
[7] For wind they sow, and a hurricane they reap, Stalk it hath none-a shoot not yielding grain, If so be it yield-strangers do swallow it up.
[8] Israel hath been swallowed up, Now they have been among nations, As a vessel in which is no delight.
[9] For they-they have gone up to Asshur, A wild ass alone by himself is Ephraim, They have hired lovers!
[10] Also though they hire among nations, Now I gather them, and they are pained a little, From the burden of a king of princes.
[11] Because Ephraim did multiply altars to sin, They have been to him altars to sin.
[12] I write for him numerous things of My law, As a strange thing they have been reckoned.
[13] The sacrifices of Mine offerings! They sacrifice flesh, and they eat, Jehovah hath not accepted them, Now doth He remember their iniquity, And inspect their sin, They-to Egypt they turn back.
[14] And forget doth Israel his Maker, and buildeth temples, And Judah hath multiplied cities of defence, And I have sent a fire into his cities, And it hath consumed their palaces!
