Hosea 81 ▼ Set the trumpet to thy mouth. As an eagle he cometh against the house of Jehovah, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law. ▼
▼ 1) Or The trumpet to thy mouth! As an eagle against the house of Jehovah!2 They shall cry unto me, My God, we Israel know thee. 3 Israel hath cast off that which is good: the enemy shall pursue him. 4 They have set up kings, but not by me; ▼ they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off. ▼
▼ 1) Or they have removed them5 He hath cast off thy calf, O Samaria; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency? 6 For from Israel is even this; the workman made it, and it is no God; yea, the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces. 7 For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: ▼ he hath no standing grain; the blade shall yield no meal; if so be it yield, strangers shall swallow it up. ▼
▼ 1) Or it hath no stalk8 Israel is swallowed up: now are they among the nations as a vessel wherein none delighteth. 9 For they are gone up to Assyria, like a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired ▼ lovers. ▼
▼ 1) Heb loves10 Yea, though they hire among the nations, now will I gather them; and they ▼ begin to be diminished by reason of the burden of the king of princes. ▼
▼ 1) Or as otherwise read shall sorrow a little (or for a little while )11 Because Ephraim hath multiplied altars for sinning, altars have been unto him for sinning. 12 I wrote for him the ten thousand things of my law; but they are counted as a strange thing. 13 As for the sacrifices of mine offerings, they sacrifice flesh and eat it; but Jehovah accepteth them not: now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins; they shall return to Egypt. 14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and builded ▼ palaces; and Judah hath multiplied fortified cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the ▼
▼ 2castles thereof. ▼
