Hosea 10

10:1 Israel [is] an empty vine, he bringeth forth fruit to
 himself: according to the multitude of his fruit he hath
 multiplied the altars; according to the goodness of his land
 they have made goodly images.
10:2 Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: he
 shall break down their altars, he shall spoil their images.
10:3 For now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared
 not the LORD; what then should a king do to us?
10:4 They have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a
 covenant: thus judgment springeth up as hemlock in the furrows
 of the field.
10:5 The inhabitants of Samaria shall fear because of the calves
 of Beth-aven: for its people shall mourn over it, and its
 priests [that] rejoiced on it, for its glory, because it is
 departed from it.
10:6 It shall also be carried to Assyria, [for] a present to
 king Jareb: Ephraim shall receive shame, and Israel shall be
 ashamed of his own counsel.
10:7 [As for] Samaria, her king is cut off as the foam upon the
10:8 The high places also of Aven, the sin of Israel, shall be
 destroyed: the thorn and the thistle shall come up on their
 altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us; and to
 the hills, Fall on us.
10:9 O Israel, thou hast sinned from the days of Gibeah: there
 they stood: the battle in Gibeah against the children of
 iniquity did not overtake them.
10:10 [It is] in my desire that I should chastise them; and the
 people shall be gathered against them, when they shall bind
 themselves in their two furrows.
10:11 And Ephraim [is as] a heifer [that is] taught, [and]
 loveth to tread out [the corn]; but I passed over upon her fair
 neck: I will make Ephraim to ride; Judah shall plow, [and]
 Jacob shall break his clods.
10:12 Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break
 up your fallow ground: for [it is] time to seek the LORD, till
 he shall come and reign righteousness upon you.
10:13 Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye
 have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou hast trusted in thy
 way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.
10:14 Therefore shall a tumult arise among thy people, and all
 thy fortresses shall be plundered, as Shalman plundered
 Beth-arbel in the day of battle: the mother was dashed in
 pieces upon [her] children.
10:15 So shall Beth-el do to you because of your great
 wickedness: in a morning shall the king of Israel be utterly
 cut off.
