HOSEA 9:4-8, 7-10

Hosea 9:4-8:

A (4) They shall not offer wine offerings to Yahweh, neither shall they be pleasing unto him: their sacrifices shall be unto them as the bread of mourners; all that eat thereof shall be polluted: for their bread for their soul shall not come INTO THE HOUSE of Yahweh.

B (5) What will ye do in the solemn DAY, and IN THE DAY of the feast of Yahweh?

C (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.

B′ (7) THE DAYS of visitation are come, THE DAYS of recompence are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred.

A′ (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.

Hosea 9:7-10:

A (7) The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; ISRAEL shall know it:

B (7) the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude OF THINE INIQUITY,

C (7) and the great HATRED.

D (8) The watchman of Ephraim was with my God: but the prophet is a snare of a fowler in all his ways,

C (8) and HATRED in the house of his God.

B′ (9) They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in the days of Gibeah: therefore he will remember THEIR INIQUITY, he will visit their sins.

A′ (10) I found ISRAEL like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.
