Hos 1:1 The word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that came to Husha son of Bariy, in the days of AuzYahu, YahuTham, Achaz, and YachazaqYahu, sovereigns of Yahudah, and in the days of Yarab'aum son of YahuAsh, sovereign of Yashara'Al.
Hos 1:2 The beginning of the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 with Husha. And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to Husha, “Go, take yourself a woman of whoring and children of whoring, for the land has utterly whored away from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.”
Hos 1:3 So he went and took Gamar, daughter of Dabliym, and she conceived and bore him a son.
Hos 1:4 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to him, “Call his name Yazarau'Al, for in a little while I shall revenge the bloodshed of Yazarau'Al on the house of Yahua, and put an end to the reign of the house of Yashara'Al.
Hos 1:5 “And it shall be in that day that I shall break the bow of Yashara'Al in the Valley of Yazarau'Al.”
Hos 1:6 And she conceived again and bore a daughter. And He said to him, “Call her name La-Rachamah, for no longer do I have compassion on the house of Yashara'Al so as to forgive them at all.
Hos 1:7 “But I shall have compassion on the house of Yahudah and save them by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 their Alahiym, and not save them by bow or by sword or battle, by horses or horsemen.”
Hos 1:8 And she weaned La-Rachamah, and conceived and bore a son,
Hos 1:9 then He said, “Call his name La-Aumiy, for you are not My people, and I am not for you.
Hos 1:10 “Yet the number of the children of Yashara'Al shall be as the sand of the sea, which is not measured nor counted. And it shall be in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ they shall be called, ‘You are the sons of the living Al.’
Hos 1:11 “And the children of Yahudah and the children of Yashara'Al shall be gathered together, and appoint for themselves one head, and shall come up out of the earth, for great is the day of Yazarau'Al!
Hos 2:1 “Say to your brothers, ‘O my people,’ and to your sisters, ‘O, compassioned one.’
Hos 2:2 “Strive with your mother, strive, for she is not My wife, nor am I her Husband! Let her put away her whorings from her face, and her adulteries from between her breasts,
Hos 2:3 lest I strip her naked, and shall set her up as on the day she was born, and shall make her like a wilderness, and shall set her like a dry land, and shall put her to death with thirst.
Hos 2:4 “And I shall not have compassion on her children, for they are the children of whorings.
Hos 2:5 “For their mother has whored, she who conceived them has acted shamelessly. For she said, ‘I go after my lovers, who give me my bread and my water, my wool and my linen, my oil and my drink.’
Hos 2:6 “Therefore, see, I am hedging up your way with thorns, and I shall wall her in, so that she does not find her paths.
Hos 2:7 “And she shall pursue her lovers but not overtake them, and shall seek them but not find them. Then she shall say, ‘Let me go and return to my first husband, for then it was better for me than now.’
Hos 2:8 “And she did not acknowledge that I gave her grain, and new wine, and oil, and increased her silver and gold which they prepared for Ba'aul.
Hos 2:9 “Therefore I shall turn back and shall take my grain in its time and My new wine in its season, and I shall take away My wool and My linen covering her nakedness.
Hos 2:10 “And now I shall uncover her shame before the eyes of her lovers, and no one shall deliver her from My hand.
Hos 2:11 “And I shall cause all her rejoicing, her festivals, her New Moons, and her Shabaths, even all her appointed times, to cease,
Hos 2:12 and lay waste her vines and her fig trees, of which she has said, ‘these are my rewards that my lovers have given me.’ And I shall make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.
Hos 2:13 “And I shall punish her for the days of the Ba'auliym to which she burned incense and adorned herself with her rings and jewelry, and went after her lovers, and forgot Me,” declares 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
Hos 2:14 “Therefore, see, I am alluring her, and shall lead her into the wilderness, and shall speak to her heart,
Hos 2:15 and give to her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Aukur as a door of expectation. And there she shall respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Matsriym.
Hos 2:16 “And it shall be, in that day,” declares 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, “that you call Me ‘My Husband,’ and no longer call Me ‘My Ba'aul.’
Hos 2:17 “And I shall remove the names of the Ba'auliym from her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.
Hos 2:18 “And in that day I shall make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the birds of the shamiym, and with the creeping creatures of the ground, when bow, and sword, and battle I break from the earth. And I shall make them lie down in safety.
Hos 2:19 “And I shall take you as a bride unto Me forever, and take you as a bride unto Me in righteousness, and in right-ruling, and kindness and compassion.
Hos 2:20 “And I shall take you as a bride unto Me in trustworthiness, and you shall know 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
Hos 2:21 “And it shall be in that day that I answer,” declares 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, “that I answer the shamiym, and they answer the earth,
Hos 2:22 and the earth answer the grain and the new wine and the oil, and they answer Yazarau'Al.
Hos 2:23 “And I shall sow her for Myself in the earth, and I shall have compassion on her who had not obtained compassion. And I shall say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people,’ while they say, ‘My Alahiym!’ ”
Hos 3:1 Then 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to me, “Go again, love a woman loved by a friend, and an adulteress, according to the love of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 for the children of Yashara'Al, though they are turning to other mighty ones and love their raisin cakes.”
Hos 3:2 So I bought her for myself for fifteen pieces of silver, and one and one-half chamars of barley.
Hos 3:3 And I said to her, “You are to remain with me many days, you are not to whore, nor become any man’s, and so I shall also be towards you.”
Hos 3:4 For many days the children of Yashara'Al are to remain without sovereign and without prince, and without slaughtering, and without pillar, and without shoulder garment or house idols.
Hos 3:5 Afterward the children of Yashara'Al shall return, and seek 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 their Alahiym, and Dud their sovereign, and fear 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and His goodness, in the latter days.
Hos 4:1 Hear the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, you children of Yashara'Al, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has a case against the inhabitants of the land: “For there is no truth or kindness or knowledge of Alahiym in the land.
Hos 4:2 “Swearing, and lying, and murdering, and stealing, and committing adultery have increased. And bloodshed follows bloodshed.
Hos 4:3 “Therefore the land mourns, and everyone living there languishes, with the beasts of the field and the birds of the shamiym. And the fish of the sea are taken away.
Hos 4:4 “However, let no one strive or reprove another, for your people are like those striving with a priest.
Hos 4:5 “And you shall stumble in the day, and the prophet shall also stumble with you in the night. And I shall make your mother perish.
Hos 4:6 “My people have perished for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being priest for Me. Since you have forgotten the Torat of your Alahiym, I also forget your children.
Hos 4:7 “As they were increased, so they sinned against Me. My esteem they have changed into shame.
Hos 4:8 “They eat the sin of My people, and lift up their desire to their crookedness.
Hos 4:9 “And it shall be: like people, like priest. And I shall punish them for their ways, and reward them for their deeds.
Hos 4:10 “And they shall eat but not be satisfied, they shall whore but not increase, for they have stopped obeying 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
Hos 4:11 “Whoring, and wine, and new wine enslave the heart.
Hos 4:12 “My people ask from their Wood, and their Staff declares to them. For a spirit of whorings has led them astray, and they went whoring from under their Alahiym.
Hos 4:13 “They slaughter on the mountaintops, and burn incense on the hills, under oak and poplars and terebinth, because its shade is good. Therefore your daughters commit whoring, and your brides commit adultery.
Hos 4:14 “I would not punish your daughters when they commit whoring, nor your brides when they commit adultery, for the men themselves go aside with whores, and offer with cult prostitutes – a people that do not understand are thrust down!
Hos 4:15 “Though you are a whore, Yashara'Al, let not Yahudah become guilty. Do not come up to Galgal, nor go up to Biyth A'un, nor swear an oath, saying, ‘As 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 lives!’
Hos 4:16 “For Yashara'Al is stubborn, like a stubborn calf. Would 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 now feed them like a lamb in a broad place?
Hos 4:17 “Aphariym is joined to idols, let him alone.
Hos 4:18 “Their drink is sour, they have whored continually. Her rulers wildly loved shame.
Hos 4:19 “A wind has bound her up in its wings, and they are ashamed because of their slaughterings.
Hos 5:1 “Hear this, O priests! And listen, O house of Yashara'Al! Give ear, O house of the sovereign! For the judgment is for you, for you have been a snare to Matsphah and a net spread on Thabur.
Hos 5:2 “And they have made deep the pit of Shatiym, so I reprove them all.
Hos 5:3 “I have known Aphariym, and Yashara'Al has not been hidden from Me. For now, O Aphariym, you have whored, Yashara'Al is defiled.
Hos 5:4 “Their deeds do not allow them to turn back to their Alahiym, for the Spirit of whorings is among them, and they do not know 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
Hos 5:5 “And the Excellency of Yashara'Al shall witness to his face, and Yashara'Al and Aphariym stumble in their crookedness. Yahudah shall also stumble with them.
Hos 5:6 “With their flocks and herds they go to seek 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, but do not find Him – He has withdrawn from them.
Hos 5:7 “They have acted treacherously against 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, for they have brought forth strange children. Now a new moon shall devour them with their portions.
Hos 5:8 “Blow the shuphar in Gab'auh, the trumpet in Ramah! Shout, O Biyth A'un! Behind you, O Banyamin!
Hos 5:9 “Aphariym is laid waste in the day of rebuke. Among the tribes of Yashara'Al I shall make known what is certain.
Hos 5:10 “The chiefs of Yahudah shall be like those who remove a border – on them I pour out my wrath like water.
Hos 5:11 “Aphariym is oppressed, crushed in judgment, because he walked after the command when it pleased him.
Hos 5:12 “So I am to Aphariym like a moth, and to the house of Yahudah like rottenness.
Hos 5:13 “When Aphariym saw his sickness, and Yahudah saw his wound, then Aphariym went to Ashur and sent to Sovereign Yarab. But he is unable to heal you, or to remove the wound from you.
Hos 5:14 “For I am like a lion to Aphariym, and like a young lion to the house of Yahudah. I Myself tear them and go, I take them away, and there is no one to deliver.
Hos 5:15 “I shall go, I shall return to My place, until they confess their guilt and seek My face, in their distress diligently search for Me, and say,
Hos 6:1 ‘Come, and let us turn back to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. For He has torn but He does heal us, He has stricken but He binds us up.
Hos 6:2 ‘After two days He shall revive us, on the third day He shall raise us up, so that we live before Him.
Hos 6:3 ‘So let us know, let us pursue to know 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. His going forth is as certain as the morning. And He comes to us like the rain, like the latter rain watering the earth.’
Hos 6:4 “Aphariym, what would I do with you? Yahudah, what would I do with you? For your trustworthiness is like a morning cloud, and like the early dew it goes away.
Hos 6:5 “Therefore I have hewn them by the prophets, I have slain them by the words of My mouth. And my right-rulings break forth as the light.
Hos 6:6 “For I delight in kindness and not slaughtering, and in the knowledge of Alahiym more than burnt offerings.
Hos 6:7 “But like Adam they transgressed the covenant. There they acted treacherously against Me.
Hos 6:8 “Gal'aud is a city of workers of wickedness – tracked up with blood.
Hos 6:9 “And as bands of robbers lie in wait for a man, so the company of priests murder on the way to Shakamah, for they have done wickedness.
Hos 6:10 “I have seen a horrible matter in the house of Yashara'Al: the whoring of Aphariym is there, Yashara'Al is defiled.
Hos 6:11 “Also, a harvest is appointed for you, O Yahudah, when I turn back the captivity of My people.
Hos 7:1 “Whenever I would heal Yashara'Al, then the crookedness of Aphariym is uncovered, and the evil deeds of Shamarun. For they have wrought falsehood, and a thief comes in, a band of robbers raids outside.
Hos 7:2 “And they do not say to their hearts that I remember all their evil. Now their own deeds have surrounded them, they have been before Me.
Hos 7:3 “With their evil they make a sovereign glad, and rulers with their lies.
Hos 7:4 “All of them are adulterers, as an oven heated by a baker, who ceases stirring the fire after kneading the dough, until it is leavened.
Hos 7:5 “In the day of our sovereign rulers became sick, inflamed with wine. He extended his hand with scoffers.
Hos 7:6 “For they have drawn near, their heart is like an oven. While they lie in wait all the night their baker sleeps. In the morning it burns like a flaming fire.
Hos 7:7 “All of them are as hot as an oven, and they consumed their rulers. All their sovereigns have fallen – not one among them calls on Me.
Hos 7:8 “Aphariym mixes himself among the peoples, Aphariym has become a cake unturned.
Hos 7:9 “Strangers have devoured his strength, but he does not know it. Gray hairs are also sprinkled on him, and he does not know it.
Hos 7:10 “And the Excellency of Yashara'Al did witness to his face, but they did not return to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 their Alahiym, nor did they seek Him for all this.
Hos 7:11 “And Aphariym has become a simple dove without heart, they have called on Matsriym, they have gone to Ashur.
Hos 7:12 “When they go I spread My net over them, I bring them down like the birds of the shamiym, I chastise them as their congregation has heard.
Hos 7:13 “Woe to them, for they have strayed from Me! Destruction to them, because they have transgressed against Me! And I Myself have ransomed them, yet they have spoken falsehoods against Me,
Hos 7:14 and did not cry out to Me with their heart when they wailed upon their beds. For grain and new wine they assemble themselves; they turn away from Me.
Hos 7:15 “And I instructed, I strengthened their arms, but they plot evil against Me.
Hos 7:16 “They return, but not to the Most High. They have been like a slack bow. Their rulers fall by the sword for the cursings of their tongue. This is their scorn in the land of Matsriym.
Hos 8:1 “Put the shaphar to your mouth, like an eagle against the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, because they have transgressed My covenant, and they have rebelled against My Torat.
Hos 8:2 “They cry out to Me, ‘My Alahiym – we, Yashara'Al, know You!’
Hos 8:3 “Yashara'Al has rejected what is good, an enemy pursues him.
Hos 8:4 “They have made sovereigns, but not from Me. They have made rulers, but I have not known. From their silver and gold they made idols for themselves, so that they are cut off.
Hos 8:5 “O Shamarun, your calf has been cast off! My wrath has burned against them. How long shall they be incapable of innocence?
Hos 8:6 “For from Yashara'Al is even this: a workman made it, and it is not Alahiym! For the calf of Shamarun is splinters!
Hos 8:7 “For they sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no bud, it yields no grain. If it does yield, strangers swallow it up.
Hos 8:8 “Yashara'Al has been swallowed up. They have now become among the nations as a vessel in which is no pleasure.
Hos 8:9 “For they themselves have gone up to Ashur. A wild donkey alone by itself is Aphariym, they have hired lovers.
Hos 8:10 “Also, although they sold themselves among the nations, this time I shall gather them, when they have suffered for a while from the burden of a sovereign, of rulers.
Hos 8:11 “Since Aphariym has made many altars for sin, they have been altars for sinning to him.
Hos 8:12 “I have written for him numerous matters of My Torat – they were regarded as strange.
Hos 8:13 “As for My offerings: they slaughter flesh and they eat. 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall not accept them. Now does He remember their crookedness and punish their sins. Let them return to Matsriym!
Hos 8:14 “For Yashara'Al has forgotten his Maker, and has built palaces. And Yahudah has increased walled cities. But I shall send fire upon his cities, and it shall devour his strongholds.”
Hos 9:1 O Yashara'Al, do not rejoice with exultation like the peoples, for you have whored from your Alahiym. You have loved a love-fee at all threshing-floors.
Hos 9:2 Threshing floor and winepress shall not feed them, and new wine shall fail in her.
Hos 9:3 They shall not dwell in the land of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, but Aphariym shall return to Matsriym, and eat unclean food in Ashur.
Hos 9:4 They do not pour wine offerings to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, nor are their offerings pleasing to Him – it being like bread of mourners to them, all who eat it are defiled. For their bread is for their life, it does not come into the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
Hos 9:5 What do you do for the appointed meeting, and in the day of the festival of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ?
Hos 9:6 For look, they shall go because of destruction – Matsriym gathers them up, Maph buries them, nettles possess their valuables of silver, thorns are in their tents.
Hos 9:7 The days of punishment have come, the days of retribution have come. Yashara'Al knows! The prophet is a fool, the ‘man of the Spirit’ is mad, because of the greatness of your crookedness, and great is the enmity.
Hos 9:8 Alahiym’s watchman over you, Aphariym, is the prophet, but a trapper’s snare is in all his ways. Enmity is in the House of his Alahiym.
Hos 9:9 They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in the days of Gab'auh. He remembers their crookedness, He punishes their sins.
Hos 9:10 “I found Yashara'Al like grapes in the wilderness. I saw your fathers as the first-fruits on the fig tree in its beginning. They themselves have gone to Ba'aul Phau'ur, and separated themselves to shame, and became as abominable as that which they loved.
Hos 9:11 “Aphariym is like a bird, their esteem has flown away – no birth, and none with child, and no conception!
Hos 9:12 “Though they bring up their children, I shall make them childless, without man. For it is woe to them when I turn away from them!
Hos 9:13 “I have seen Aphariym, like Tsur, planted in a pleasant place. But Aphariym shall bring out his children to the murderer.”
Hos 9:14 Give them, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 – give what? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.
Hos 9:15 “All their evil is in Galgal, for there I have hated them. Because of the evil of their deeds I drive them from My house, no more do I love them. All their rulers are rebels.
Hos 9:16 “Aphariym has been smitten, their root has dried up, they yield no fruit. Even if they bear children, I shall put to death the precious ones of their womb.”
Hos 9:17 My Alahiym rejects them, because they have not obeyed Him, so that they become wanderers among the gentiles!
Hos 10:1 Yashara'Al is a degenerate vine, he brings forth fruit for himself. As his fruit increased, he increased the altars. And the better his land, the better they made the pillars.
Hos 10:2 Their heart has been slippery, now they are guilty. He breaks down their altars, He destroys their pillars.
Hos 10:3 For now they say, “We have no sovereign, because we did not fear 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. What would the sovereign do for us?”
Hos 10:4 They have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a covenant. Therefore judgment shall spring up like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field.
Hos 10:5 The inhabitants of Shamarun fear because of the calf of Biyth A'un. For its people shall mourn for it, as well as its priests who used to rejoice over it, because of its esteem that has departed from it.
Hos 10:6 It is also brought to Ashur as a present for Sovereign Yarab. Aphariym does receive shame, and Yashara'Al is put to shame through his counsel.
Hos 10:7 Shamarun is cut off, her sovereign is like a twig on the surface of the water.
Hos 10:8 And the high places of A'un, the sin of Yashara'Al, shall be destroyed, thorn and thistle come up on their altars. And they shall say to the mountains, “Cover us!” and to the hills, “Fall on us!”
Hos 10:9 “O Yashara'Al, you have sinned from the days of Gab'auh. There they stood! The battle in Gab'auh against the children of perversity did not overtake them.
Hos 10:10 “When I desire, then I bind them. And peoples shall be gathered against them when I bind them for their double guilt.
Hos 10:11 “And Aphariym is a trained heifer, loving to thresh grain. But I Myself shall pass over her comely neck – I put Aphariym to the yoke, Yahudah ploughs, Ya'auqab harrows for him.”
Hos 10:12 Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap according to loving commitment, break up your tillable ground, it is time to seek 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.
Hos 10:13 You have ploughed wrongness, you have reaped unrighteousness, you have eaten the fruit of lying, because you trusted in your own way, in your many mighty men.
Hos 10:14 And uproar shall arise among your people, and all your strongholds shall be ravaged as Shalman ravaged Biyth Arbal in the day of battle – a mother dashed in pieces on her children.
Hos 10:15 Thus it shall be done to you, O Biyth Al, because of the evil of your wickedness. At dawn the sovereign of Yashara'Al is completely cut off!
Hos 11:1 “When Yashara'Al was a child, I loved him, and out of Matsriym I called My son.
Hos 11:2 “They called to them, so they went from their face. They slaughtered to the Ba'auliym, and burned incense to carved images.
Hos 11:3 “And I taught Aphariym to walk, taking them by their arms, but they did not know that I healed them.
Hos 11:4 “I drew them with ropes of man, with cords of love, and I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. And I bent down, fed them.
Hos 11:5 “No, let him return to the land of Matsriym, and let Ashur be his sovereign, because they refused to repent!
Hos 11:6 “And the sword shall whirl in his cities, and it shall demolish his gate bars, and consume, because of their own counsels.
Hos 11:7 “My people are bent towards backsliding from Me. Though they call to the Most High, He lifts none of them up.
Hos 11:8 “How could I give you up, Aphariym? How could I hand you over, Yashara'Al? How could I make you like Admah? How could I set you like Tsabaiym? My heart turns within Me, all My compassion is kindled.
Hos 11:9 “I shall not let the heat of My wrath burn, I shall not turn to destroy Aphariym. For I am Al, and not man, the Set-apart One in your midst, and I shall not come in enmity.
Hos 11:10 “Let them follow 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. Like a lion He roars. When He roars, then sons shall tremble from the west.
Hos 11:11 “They shall tremble like a bird from Matsriym, and like a dove from the land of Ashur. And I shall let them dwell in their own houses,” declares 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
Hos 11:12 “Aphariym has surrounded Me with lying, and the house of Yashara'Al with deceit. But Yahudah is still wandering with Al, and is true to the Set-apart One.”
Hos 12:1 Aphariym is feeding on wind, and pursuing an east wind. All the day he increases falsehood and ruin. And they make a covenant with Ashur, and oil is sent to Matsriym.
Hos 12:2 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has a controversy with Yahudah, to punish Ya'auqab according to his ways, to repay him according to his deeds.
Hos 12:3 He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and in his strength he strove with Alahiym.
Hos 12:4 He strove with the Messenger and overcame, he wept and sought His favor. He found Him in Biyth Al, and there He spoke to us –
Hos 12:5 even 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of hosts, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is His remembrance.
Hos 12:6 Therefore, return to your Alahiym. Guard kindness and right-ruling, and wait on your Alahiym continually.
Hos 12:7 A merchant! In his hand are scales of deceit, he loved to oppress.
Hos 12:8 And Aphariym says, “Indeed, I have become rich, I have found wealth for myself. In all my labors they shall find in me no crookedness that is sin.”
Hos 12:9 “But I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym since the land of Matsriym, again I shall make you dwell in tents as in the days of the appointed time.
Hos 12:10 “And I have spoken to the prophets, and have increased visions. And through the prophets I gave parables.”
Hos 12:11 Is Gal'aud wicked? Certainly, they have been false! In Galgal they have offered bulls. Also their altars are as heaps on a ploughed field.
Hos 12:12 And when Ya'auqab fled to the country of Aram, Yashara'Al served for a wife, and for a wife he kept watch.
Hos 12:13 And by a prophet 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 brought Yashara'Al out of Matsriym, and by a prophet he was watched over.
Hos 12:14 Aphariym has provoked most bitterly. So his Master left his blood-guilt on him, and repaid him for his reproach.
Hos 13:1 When Aphariym spoke there was trembling, he was lifted up in Yashara'Al. But through Ba'aul he became guilty, and he died.
Hos 13:2 And now they sin more and more, and make for themselves moulded images from their silver, idols according to their skill, all of them the work of craftsmen. They say of them, “Let the men who slaughter kiss the calves!”
Hos 13:3 Therefore they shall be like a morning cloud, and like dew that goes away early, like chaff blown off from a threshing-floor, and like smoke from a window.
Hos 13:4 “But I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym since the land of Matsriym, and an Alahiym besides Me you shall not know, for there is no Savior besides Me.
Hos 13:5 “I knew you in the wilderness, in the land of drought.
Hos 13:6 “When they were fed they were satisfied. They were satisfied and their heart was exalted, therefore they forgot Me.
Hos 13:7 “So I am become like a lion to them, like a leopard I watch by the way,
Hos 13:8 like a bear robbed of her young I attack them and rip open the enclosure of their heart. And there I devour them like a lion, a wild beast tear them apart.
Hos 13:9 “You have destroyed yourself, O Yashara'Al, but your help is in Me.
Hos 13:10 “Where is your sovereign now to save you in all your cities, and your rulers of whom you said, ‘Give me a sovereign and rulers’?
Hos 13:11 “I gave you a sovereign in My displeasure, but I took him away in My wrath.
