Hosea 7

1  When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, and the troop of robbers spoileth without.

2  And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before my face.

3  They make the king glad with their wickedness, and the princes with their lies.

4  They are all adulterers, as an oven heated by the baker, who ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough, until it be leavened.

5  In the day of our king the princes have made him sick with bottles of wine; he stretched out his hand with scorners.

6  For they have made ready their heart like an oven, whiles they lie in wait: their baker sleepeth all the night; in the morning it burneth as a flaming fire.

7  They are all hot as an oven, and have devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen: there is none among them that calleth unto me.

8  Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.

9  Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not.

10  And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek him for all this.
