Daily Verse Reading – Hosea 8:4-7, 11-13

hos_goldencalves4They made kings, but not through me. They set up princes, but without my knowledge. With their silver and gold they made idols for their own destruction. 5I have spurned your calf, O Sama’ria. My anger burns against them. How long will it be till they are pure 6in Israel? A workman made it; it is not God. The calf of Sama’ria shall be broken to pieces. 7For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. The standing grain has no heads, it shall yield no meal; if it were to yield, aliens would devour it. 11Because E’phraim has multiplied altars for sinning, they have become to him altars for sinning. 12Were I to write for him my laws by ten thousands, they would be regarded as a strange thing. 13They love sacrifice; they sacrifice flesh and eat it; but the LORD has no delight in them. Now he will remember their iniquity, and punish their sins; they shall return to Egypt.
