Chapter 8

1


 

  Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.  

 

 


2


 

  Israel shall cry to me, My God, we know thee.  

 

 


3


 

  Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.  

 

 


4


 

  They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made for themselves idols, that they may be cut off.  

 

 


5


 

  Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; my anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocence?  

 

 


6


 

  For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.  

 

 


7


 

  For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if it shall yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.  

 

 


8


 

  Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel in which is no pleasure.  

 

 


9


 

  For they have gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers.  

 

 


10


 

  Yes, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes.  

 

 


11


 

  Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be to him to sin.  

 

 


12


 

  I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.  

 

 


13


 

  They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of my offerings, and eat it; but the LORD accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.  

 

 


14


 

  For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fortified cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.
