Hosea 12

1  Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind: he daily increaseth lies and desolation; and they do make a covenant with the Assyrians, and oil is carried into Egypt.

2  The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him.

3  He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God:

4  Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spake with us;

5  Even the LORD God of hosts; the LORD is his memorial.

6  Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually.

7  He is a merchant, the balances of deceit are in his hand: he loveth to oppress.

8  And Ephraim said, Yet I am become rich, I have found me out substance: in all my labours they shall find none iniquity in me that were sin.

9  And I that am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast.

10  I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.
