Hosea 5

5:1 Hear ye this, O priests; and hearken, ye house of Israel;
 and give ye ear, O house of the king; for judgment [is] towards
 you, because ye have been a snare on Mizpah, and a net spread
 upon Tabor.
5:2 And the revolters are profound to make slaughter, though I
 [have been] a rebuker of them all.
5:3 I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me: for now, O
 Ephraim, thou art guilty of lewdness, [and] Israel is defiled.
5:4 They will not frame their doings to turn to their God: for
 the spirit of lewdness [is] in the midst of them, and they have
 not known the LORD.
5:5 And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore
 shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also
 shall fall with them.
5:6 They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek
 the LORD; but they shall not find [him]; he hath withdrawn
 himself from them.
5:7 They have dealt treacherously against the LORD: for they
 have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them
 with their portions.
5:8 Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah, [and] the trumpet in Ramah:
 cry aloud [at] Beth-aven, after thee, O Benjamin.
5:9 Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the
 tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.
5:10 The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound:
 [therefore] I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.
5:11 Ephraim [is] oppressed [and] broken in judgment, because he
 willingly walked after the commandment.
5:12 Therefore [will] I [be] to Ephraim as a moth, and to the
 house of Judah as rottenness.
5:13 When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah [saw] his wound,
 then Ephraim went to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet
 he could not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.
5:14 For I [will be] to Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion
 to the house of Judah: I, [even] I, will tear and go away; I
 will take away, and none shall rescue [him].
5:15 I will go [and] return to my place, till they acknowledge
 their offense, and seek my face: in their affliction they will
 seek me early.
