Select Chapter:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14

1

Set the trumpet to your mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.

2

Israel shall cry unto me, My God, we know you.

3

Israel has cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.

4

They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.

5

Your calf, O Samaria, has cast you off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be before they attain to innocence?

6

For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.

7

For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it has no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.

8

Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.

9

For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim has hired lovers.

10

Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes.

11

Because Ephraim has made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.

12

I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.

13

They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; but the LORD accepts them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.

14

For Israel has forgotten his Maker, and builds temples; and Judah has multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.
