Hosea 8


8:1 [Set] the trumpet to thy mouth. [He shall come] as an eagle
 against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed
 my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
8:2 Israel shall cry to me, My God, we know thee.
8:3 Israel hath cast off [the thing that is] good: the enemy
 shall pursue him.
8:4 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 for themselves idols, that they may be cut off.
8:5 Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast [thee] off; my anger is
 kindled against them: how long [will it be] ere they attain to
 innocence?
8:6 For from Israel [was] it also: the workman made it;
 therefore it [is] not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be
 broken in pieces.
8:7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the
 whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if it
 shall yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.
8:8 Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles
 as a vessel in which [is] no pleasure.
8:9 For they have gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by
 himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers.
8:10 Yes, though they have hired among the nations, now will I
 gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of
 the king of princes.
8:11 Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall
 be to him to sin.
8:12 I have written to him the great things of my law, [but]
 they were counted as a strange thing.
8:13 They sacrifice flesh [for] the sacrifices of my offerings,
 and eat [it]; [but] the LORD accepteth them not; now will he
 remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall
 return to Egypt.
8:14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples;
 and Judah hath multiplied fortified cities: but I will send a
 fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.
