Hosea 9 (WEBP)

[1] Don’t rejoice, Israel, to jubilation like the nations; for you were unfaithful to your God. You love the wages of a prostitute at every grain threshing floor.
[2] The threshing floor and the wine press won’t feed them, and the new wine will fail her.
[3] They won’t dwell in Yahweh’s land; but Ephraim will return to Egypt, and they will eat unclean food in Assyria.
[4] They won’t pour out wine offerings to Yahweh, neither will they be pleasing to him. Their sacrifices will be to them like the bread of mourners; all who eat of it will be polluted; for their bread will be for their appetite. It will not come into Yahweh’s house.
[5] What will you do in the day of solemn assembly, and in the day of the feast of Yahweh?
[6] For, behold, when they flee destruction, Egypt will gather them up. Memphis will bury them. Nettles will possess their pleasant things of silver. Thorns will be in their tents.
[7] The days of visitation have come. The days of reckoning have come. Israel will consider the prophet to be a fool, and the man who is inspired to be insane, because of the abundance of your sins, and because your hostility is great.
[8] A prophet watches over Ephraim with my God. A fowler’s snare is on all of his paths, and hostility in the house of his God.
[9] They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in the days of Gibeah. He will remember their iniquity. He will punish them for their sins.
[10] I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness. I saw your fathers as the first ripe in the fig tree at its first season; but they came to Baal Peor, and consecrated themselves to the shameful thing, and became abominable like that which they loved.
[11] As for Ephraim, their glory will fly away like a bird. There will be no birth, no one with child, and no conception.
[12] Though they bring up their children, yet I will bereave them, so that not a man shall be left. Indeed, woe also to them when I depart from them!
[13] I have seen Ephraim, like Tyre, planted in a pleasant place; but Ephraim will bring out his children to the murderer.
[14] Give them—Yahweh what will you give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.
[15] “All their wickedness is in Gilgal; for there I hated them. Because of the wickedness of their deeds, I will drive them out of my house! I will love them no more. All their princes are rebels.
[16] Ephraim is struck. Their root has dried up. They will bear no fruit. Even though they give birth, yet I will kill the beloved ones of their womb.”
[17] My God will cast them away, because they didn’t listen to him; and they will be wanderers among the nations.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Hosea 9 (KJVS)

[1] Rejoice H8055 (8799) not, O Israel H3478, for joy H1524, as [other] people H5971: for thou hast gone a whoring H2181 (8804) from thy God H430, thou hast loved H157 (8804) a reward H868 upon every cornfloor H1637 H1715.
[2] The floor H1637 and the winepress H3342 shall not feed H7462 (8799) them, and the new wine H8492 shall fail H3584 (8762) in her.
[3] They shall not dwell H3427 (8799) in the LORD’S H3068 land H776; but Ephraim H669 shall return H7725 (8804) to Egypt H4714, and they shall eat H398 (8799) unclean H2931 [things] in Assyria H804.
[4] They shall not offer H5258 (8799) wine H3196 [offerings] to the LORD H3068, neither shall they be pleasing H6149 (8799) unto him: their sacrifices H2077 [shall be] unto them as the bread H3899 of mourners H205; all that eat H398 (8802) thereof shall be polluted H2930 (8691): for their bread H3899 for their soul H5315 shall not come H935 (8799) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068.
[5] What will ye do H6213 (8799) in the solemn H4150 day H3117, and in the day H3117 of the feast H2282 of the LORD H3068?
[6] For, lo, they are gone H1980 (8804) because of destruction H7701: Egypt H4714 shall gather them up H6908 (8762), Memphis H4644 shall bury H6912 (8762) them: the pleasant H4261 [places] for their silver H3701, nettles H7057 shall possess H3423 (8799) them: thorns H2336 [shall be] in their tabernacles H168.
[7] The days H3117 of visitation H6486 are come H935 (8804), the days H3117 of recompence H7966 are come H935 (8804); Israel H3478 shall know H3045 (8799) [it]: the prophet H5030 [is] a fool H191, the spiritual H7307 man H376 [is] mad H7696 (8794), for the multitude H7230 of thine iniquity H5771, and the great H7227 hatred H4895.
[8] The watchman H6822 (8802) of Ephraim H669 [was] with my God H430: [but] the prophet H5030 [is] a snare H6341 of a fowler H3352 in all his ways H1870, [and] hatred H4895 in the house H1004 of his God H430.
[9] They have deeply H6009 (8689) corrupted H7843 (8765) [themselves], as in the days H3117 of Gibeah H1390: [therefore] he will remember H2142 (8799) their iniquity H5771, he will visit H6485 (8799) their sins H2403.
[10] I found H4672 (8804) Israel H3478 like grapes H6025 in the wilderness H4057; I saw H7200 (8804) your fathers H1 as the firstripe H1063 in the fig tree H8384 at her first time H7225: [but] they went H935 (8804) to Baalpeor H1187, and separated H5144 (8735) themselves unto [that] shame H1322; and [their] abominations H8251 were according as they loved H157 (8800).
[11] [As for] Ephraim H669, their glory H3519 shall fly away H5774 (8709) like a bird H5775, from the birth H3205 (8800), and from the womb H990, and from the conception H2032.
[12] Though they bring up H1431 (8762) their children H1121, yet will I bereave H7921 (8765) them, [that there shall] not [be] a man H120 [left]: yea, woe H188 also to them when I depart H5493 (8800) from them!
[13] Ephraim H669, as I saw H7200 (8804) Tyrus H6865, [is] planted H8362 (8803) in a pleasant place H5116: but Ephraim H669 shall bring forth H3318 (8687) his children H1121 to the murderer H2026 (8802).
[14] Give H5414 (8798) them, O LORD H3068: what wilt thou give H5414 (8799)? give H5414 (8798) them a miscarrying H7921 (8688) womb H7358 and dry H6784 (8802) breasts H7699.
[15] All their wickedness H7451 [is] in Gilgal H1537: for there I hated H8130 (8804) them: for the wickedness H7455 of their doings H4611 I will drive them out H1644 (8762) of mine house H1004, I will love H160 them no more H3254 (8686): all their princes H8269 [are] revolters H5637 (8802).
[16] Ephraim H669 is smitten H5221 (8717), their root H8328 is dried up H3001 (8804), they shall bear H6213 (8799) no fruit H6529: yea, though they bring forth H3205 (8799), yet will I slay H4191 (8689) [even] the beloved H4261 [fruit] of their womb H990.
[17] My God H430 will cast them away H3988 (8799), because they did not hearken H8085 (8804) unto him: and they shall be wanderers H5074 (8802) among the nations H1471.

Young’s Literal Translation

Hosea 9 (YLT)

[1] ‘Rejoice not, O Israel, be not joyful like the peoples, For thou hast gone a-whoring from thy God, Thou hast loved a gift near all floors of corn.
[2] Floor and wine-press do not delight them, And new wine doth fail in her,
[3] They do not abide in the land of Jehovah, And turned back hath Ephraim to Egypt, And in Asshur an unclean thing they eat.
[4] They pour not out wine to Jehovah, Nor are they sweet to Him, Their sacrifices are as bread of mourners to them, All eating it are unclean: For their bread is for themselves, It doth not come into the house of Jehovah.
[5] What do ye at the day appointed? And at the day of Jehovah’s festival?
[6] For, lo, they have gone because of destruction, Egypt gathereth them, Moph burieth them, The desirable things of their silver, Nettles possess them-a thorn is in their tents.
[7] Come in have the days of inspection, Come in have the days of recompence, Israel doth know! a fool is the prophet, Mad is the man of the Spirit, Because of the abundance of thine iniquity, And great is the hatred.
[8] Ephraim is looking away from My God, The prophet! a snare of a fowler is over all his ways, Hatred is in the house of his God.
[9] They have gone deep-have done corruptly, As in the days of Gibeah, He doth remember their iniquity, He doth inspect their sins.
[10] As grapes in a wilderness I found Israel, As the first-fruit in a fig-tree, at its beginning, I have seen your fathers, They-they have gone in to Baal-Peor, And are separated to a shameful thing, And are become abominable like their love.
[11] Ephraim is as a fowl, Fly away doth their honour, without birth, And without womb, and without conception.
[12] For though they nourish their sons, I have made them childless-without man, Surely also, woe to them, when I turn aside from them.
[13] Ephraim! when I have looked to the rock, Is planted in comeliness, And Ephraim is to bring out unto a slayer his sons.
[14] Give to them, Jehovah-what dost Thou give? Give to them miscarrying womb, and dry breasts.
[15] All their evil is in Gilgal, Surely there I have hated them, Because of the evil of their doings, Out of My house I do drive them, I add not to love them, all their heads are apostates.
[16] Ephraim hath been smitten, Their root hath dried up, fruit they yield not, Yea, though they bring forth, I have put to death the desired of their womb.
[17] Reject them doth my God, Because they have not hearkened to Him, And they are wanderers among nations!
