Hosea 13


13:1 When Ephraim spoke trembling, he exalted himself in Israel;
 but when he offended in Baal, he died.
13:2 And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten
 images of their silver, [and] idols according to their own
 understanding, all of it the work of artificers: they say of
 them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.
13:3 Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the
 early dew that passeth away, as the chaff [that] is driven with
 the whirlwind from the floor, and as the smoke from the
 chimney.
13:4 Yet I [am] the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and
 thou shalt know no God but me: for [there is] no savior besides
 me.
13:5 I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great
 drouth.
13:6 According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were
 filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they
 forgotten me.
13:7 Therefore I will be to them as a lion: as a leopard by the
 way will I observe [them].
13:8 I will meet them as a bear [that is] bereaved [of her
 whelps], and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will
 I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.
13:9 O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me [is] thy
 help.
13:10 I will be thy king: where [is any other] that may save
 thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst,
 Give me a king and princes?
13:11 I gave thee a king in my anger, and took [him] away in my
 wrath.
13:12 The iniquity of Ephraim [is] bound up; his sin [is] hid.
13:13 The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he
 [is] an unwise son; for he should not stay long in [the place
 of] the breaking forth of children.
13:14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will
 redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues, O
 grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from
 my eyes.
13:15 Though he is fruitful among [his] brethren, an east wind
 shall come, the wind of the LORD shall come up from the
 wilderness, and his spring shall become dry, and his fountain
 shall be dried up: he shall pillage the treasure of all
 pleasant vessels.
13:16 Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled
 against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants
 shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be
 ripped up.
