Hosea 7

7:1 When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of
 Ephraim was disclosed, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they
 commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, [and] the troop of
 robbers strippeth without.
7:2 And they consider not in their hearts [that] I remember all
 their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them around;
 they are before my face.
7:3 They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the
 princes with their lies.
7:4 They [are] all adulterers, as an oven heated by the baker,
 [who] ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough,
 until it is leavened.
7:5 In the day of our king the princes have made [him] sick with
 bottles of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners.
7:6 For they have made ready their heart like an oven, while
 they lie in wait: their baker sleepeth all the night; in the
 morning it burneth as a flaming fire.
7:7 They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges;
 all their kings are fallen: [there is] none among them that
 calleth to me.
7:8 Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is
 a cake not turned.
7:9 Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth [it]
 not: yes, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he
 knoweth not.
7:10 And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do
 not return to the LORD their God, nor seek him for all this.
7:11 Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call
 to Egypt, they go to Assyria.
7:12 When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will
 bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise
 them, as their congregation hath heard.
7:13 Woe to them! for they have fled from me: destruction to
 them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have
 redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me.
7:14 And they have not cried to me with their heart, when they
 howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and
 wine, [and] they rebel against me.
7:15 Though I have bound [and] strengthened their arms, yet do
 they imagine mischief against me.
7:16 They return, [but] not to the most High: they are like a
 deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the
 rage of their tongue: this [shall be] their derision in the
 land of Egypt.
