~ The Charge Against Israel

Hos 4:1  Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with [a charge to bring against ] the inhabitants of the land [the Israelites], because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

Hos 4:2  By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out [all bounds], and blood [bloodshed] toucheth [follows] blood [bloodshed].

Hos 4:3  Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish [waste away], with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

Hos 4:4  Yet let no man strive [bring a charge], nor reprove [accuse] another: for thy people are as [like] they that strive with the [bring charges against a] priest.

Hos 4:5  Therefore shalt thou [the priest] fall [stumble] in the day, and the prophet also shall fall [stumble] with thee [the priest] in the night, and I will destroy thy [the priest's] mother.

Hos 4:6  My [the LORD's] people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou [the priest] hast rejected knowledge, I [the LORD] will also reject thee [the priest], that thou shalt be no priest to me [not be my priests]: seeing thou [the priest] hast forgotten [ignored] the law of thy God, I will also forget [ignore] thy children.

Hos 4:7  As they [the priests] were increased, so they sinned against me [the LORD]: therefore will I change their [the priests] glory into shame.

Hos 4:8  They [the priests] eat up [feed on] the sin of my [the LORD's] people, and they [the priests] set their heart on [relish] their iniquity [wickedness].

Hos 4:9  And there shall [it will] be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.

Hos 4:10  For they [people & priests] shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to [deserted] the LORD.

Hos 4:11  Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart [understanding of my people].

Hos 4:12  My [the LORD's] people ask counsel at their stocks [consult a wooden idol], and their staff [a stick of wood] declareth unto [answers] them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err [be led astray], and they have gone a whoring from under their God.

Hos 4:13  They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.

Hos 4:14  I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.

Hos 4:15  Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Bethaven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.

Hos 4:16  For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.

Hos 4:17  Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.

Hos 4:18  Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.

Hos 4:19  The wind hath bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
