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.

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!
