(Hos 5:1) Hear ye this, O priests; and hearken, ye house of Israel; and give ye ear, O house of the king; for judgment {is} toward you, because ye have been a snare on Mizpah, and a net spread upon Tabor.
(Hos 5:2) And the revolters are profound to make slaughter, though I {have been} a rebuker of them all.
(Hos 5:3) I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me: for now, O Ephraim, thou committest whoredom, {and} Israel is defiled.
(Hos 5:4) They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms {is} in the midst of them, and they have not known the Lord.
(Hos 5:5) And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity: Judah also shall fall with them.
(Hos 5:6) They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the Lord; but they shall not find {him}; he hath withdrawn himself from them.
(Hos 5:7) They have dealt treacherously against the Lord: for they have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them with their portions.
(Hos 5:8) Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah, {and} the trumpet in Ramah: cry aloud {at} Bethaven, after thee, O Benjamin.
(Hos 5:9) Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.
(Hos 5:10) The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: {therefore} I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.
(Hos 5:11) Ephraim {is} oppressed {and} broken in judgment, because he willingly walked after the commandment.
(Hos 5:12) Therefore {will} I {be} unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.
(Hos 5:13) When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah {saw} his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.
(Hos 5:14) For I {will be} unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, {even} I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue {him}.
(Hos 5:15) I will go {and} return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
