Hosea 12

12:1 Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind:
 he daily multiplieth lies and desolation; and they do make a
 covenant with the Assyrians, and oil is carried into Egypt.
12:2 The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will
 punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings
 will he recompense him.
12:3 He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his
 strength he had power with God:
12:4 Yes, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept,
 and made supplication to him: he found him [in] Beth-el, and
 there he spoke with us;
12:5 Even the LORD God of hosts; the LORD [is] his memorial.
12:6 Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment,
 and wait on thy God continually.
12:7 [He is] a merchant, the balances of deceit [are] in his
 hand: he loveth to oppress.
12:8 And Ephraim said, Yet I have become rich, I have found for
 myself substance: [in] all my labors they shall find no
 iniquity in me that [were] sin.
12:9 And I [that am] the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt
 will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of
 the solemn feast.
12:10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied
 visions, and used similitudes by the ministry of the prophets.
12:11 [Is there] iniquity [in] Gilead? surely they are vanity:
 they sacrifice bullocks in Gilgal; yes, their altars [are] as
 heaps in the furrows of the fields.
12:12 And Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel
 served for a wife, and for a wife he kept [sheep].
12:13 And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and
 by a prophet was he preserved.
12:14 Ephraim provoked [him] to anger most bitterly: therefore
 will he leave his blood upon him, and his reproach will his
 Lord return to him.
