Hosea 9

9:1 Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as [other] people: for thou
 hast apostatized from thy God, thou hast loved a reward upon
 every corn-floor.
9:2 The floor and the wine-press shall not feed them, and the
 new wine shall fail in her.
9:3 They shall not dwell in the LORD'S land; but Ephraim shall
 return to Egypt, and they shall eat unclean [things] in
9:4 They shall not offer wine-[offerings] to the LORD, neither
 shall they be pleasing to him: their sacrifices [shall be] to
 them as the bread of mourners; all that eat of it shall be
 polluted: for their bread for their soul shall not come into
 the house of the LORD.
9:5 What will ye do in the solemn day, and in the day of the
 feast of the LORD?
9:6 For lo, they are gone because of destruction: Egypt shall
 gather them up, Memphis shall bury them: the pleasant [places]
 for their silver, nettles shall possess them: thorns [shall be]
 in their tabernacles.
9:7 The days of visitation are come, the days of recompense are
 come; Israel shall know [it]: the prophet [is] a fool, the
 spiritual man [is] mad, for the multitude of thy iniquity, and
 the great hatred.
9:8 The watchman of Ephraim [was] with my God: [but] the
 prophet [is] a snare of a fowler in all his ways, [and] hatred
 in the house of his God.
9:9 They have deeply corrupted [themselves], as in the days of
 Gibeah: [therefore] he will remember their iniquity, he will
 visit their sins.
9:10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your
 fathers as the first ripe in the fig-tree at her first time:
 [but] they went to Baal-peor, and separated themselves to
 [that] shame; and [their] abominations were according as they
9:11 [As for] Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird,
 from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception.
9:12 Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave
 them, [that there shall] not [be] a man [left]: yes, woe also
 to them when I depart from them!
9:13 Ephraim, as I saw Tyre, [is] planted in a pleasant place:
 but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer.
9:14 Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a
 miscarrying womb and dry breasts.
9:15 All their wickedness [is] in Gilgal: for there I hated
 them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out
 of my house, I will love them no more: all their princes [are]
9:16 Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall
 bear no fruit: yes, though they bring forth, yet will I slay
 [even] the beloved [fruit] of their womb.
9:17 My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken
 to him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations.
