Hosea 4 - Versions
Hosea 4 Text (WEB)
  1. Hear the word of Yahweh, you children of Israel; for Yahweh has a charge against the inhabitants of the land: "Indeed there is no truth, nor goodness, nor knowledge of God in the land.
  2. There is cursing, lying, murder, stealing, and committing adultery; they break boundaries, and bloodshed causes bloodshed.
  3. Therefore the land will mourn, and everyone who dwells therein will waste away. all living things in her, even the animals of the field and the birds of the sky; yes, the fish of the sea also die.
  4. "Yet let no man bring a charge, neither let any man accuse; For your people are like those who bring charges against a priest.
  5. You will stumble in the day, and the prophet will also stumble with you in the night; and I will destroy your mother.
  6. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you may be no priest to me. Because you have forgotten your God's law, I will also forget your children.
  7. As they were multiplied, so they sinned against me. I will change their glory into shame.
  8. They feed on the sin of my people, and set their heart on their iniquity.
  9. It will be, like people, like priest; and I will punish them for their ways, and will repay them for their deeds.
  10. They will eat, and not have enough. They will play the prostitute, and will not increase; because they have abandoned giving to Yahweh.
  11. Prostitution, wine, and new wine take away understanding.
  12. My people consult with their wooden idol, and answer to a stick of wood. Indeed the spirit of prostitution has led them astray, and they have been unfaithful to their God.
  13. They sacrifice on the tops of the mountains, and burn incense on the hills, under oaks and poplars and terebinths, because its shade is good. Therefore your daughters play the prostitute, and your brides commit adultery.
  14. I will not punish your daughters when they play the prostitute, nor your brides when they commit adultery; because the men consort with prostitutes, and they sacrifice with the shrine prostitutes; so the people without understanding will come to ruin.
  15. "Though you, Israel, play the prostitute, yet don't let Judah offend; and don't come to Gilgal, neither go up to Beth Aven, nor swear, 'As Yahweh lives.'
  16. For Israel has behaved extremely stubbornly, like a stubborn heifer. Then how will Yahweh feed them like a lamb in a meadow.
  17. Ephraim is joined to idols. Leave him alone!
  18. Their drink has become sour. They play the prostitute continually. Her rulers dearly love their shameful way.
  19. The wind has wrapped her up in its wings; and they shall be disappointed because of their sacrifices.
Hosea 4 Text (Hebrew)
  1. שמעו דבר־יהוה בני ישראל כי ריב ליהוה עם־יושבי הארץ כי אין־אמת ואין־חסד ואין־דעת אלהים בארץ׃
  2. אלה וכחש ורצח וגנב ונאף פרצו ודמים בדמים נגעו׃
  3. על־כן תאבל הארץ ואמלל כל־יושב בה בחית השדה ובעוף השמים וגם־דגי הים יאספו׃
  4. אך איש אל־ירב ואל־יוכח איש ועמך כמריבי כהן׃
  5. וכשלת היום וכשל גם־נביא עמך לילה ודמיתי אמך׃
  6. נדמו עמי מבלי הדעת כי־אתה הדעת מאסת ואמאסאך מכהן לי ותשכח תורת אלהיך אשכח בניך גם־אני׃
  7. כרבם כן חטאו־לי כבודם בקלון אמיר׃
  8. חטאת עמי יאכלו ואל־עונם ישאו נפשו׃
  9. והיה כעם ככהן ופקדתי עליו דרכיו ומעלליו אשיב לו׃
  10. ואכלו ולא ישבעו הזנו ולא יפרצו כי־את־יהוה עזבו לשמר׃
  11. זנות ויין ותירוש יקח־לב׃
  12. עמי בעצו ישאל ומקלו יגיד לו כי רוח זנונים התעה ויזנו מתחת אלהיהם׃
  13. על־ראשי ההרים יזבחו ועל־הגבעות יקטרו תחת אלון ולבנה ואלה כי טוב צלה על־כן תזנינה בנותיכם וכלותיכם תנאפנה׃
  14. לא־אפקוד על־בנותיכם כי תזנינה ועל־כלותיכם כי תנאפנה כי־הם עם־הזנות יפרדו ועם־הקדשות יזבחו ועם לא־יבין ילבט׃
  15. אם־זנה אתה ישראל אל־יאשם יהודה ואל־תבאו הגלגל ואל־תעלו בית און ואל־תשבעו חי־יהוה׃
  16. כי כפרה סררה סרר ישראל עתה ירעם יהוה ככבש במרחב׃
  17. חבור עצבים אפרים הנח־לו׃
  18. סר סבאם הזנה הזנו אהבו הבו קלון מגניה׃
  19. צרר רוח אותה בכנפיה ויבשו מזבחותם׃ ס
Hosea 4 Text (Greek)
  1. ακουσατε λογον κυριου υιοι ισραηλ διοτι κρισις τω κυριω προς τους κατοικουντας την γην διοτι ουκ εστιν αληθεια ουδε ελεος ουδε επιγνωσις θεου επι της
  2. αρα και ψευδος και φονος και κλοπη και μοιχεια κεχυται επι της γης και αιματα εφ' αιμασιν
  3. δια τουτο πενθησει η γη και σμικρυνθησεται συν πασιν τοις κατοικουσιν αυτην συν τοις θηριοις του αγρου και συν τοις ερπετοις της γης και συν τοις πετεινοις του ουρανου και οι ιχθυες της θαλασσης
  4. οπως μηδεις μητε δικαζηται μητε ελεγχη μηδεις ο δε λαος μου ως αντιλεγομενος
  5. και ασθενησεις ημερας και ασθενησει και προφητης μετα σου νυκτι ωμοιωσα την μητερα
  6. ωμοιωθη ο λαος μου ως ουκ εχων γνωσιν οτι συ επιγνωσιν απωσω καγω απωσομαι σε του μη ιερατευειν μοι και επελαθου νομον θεου σου καγω επιλησομαι τεκνων
  7. κατα το πληθος αυτων ουτως ημαρτον μοι την δοξαν αυτων εις ατιμιαν
  8. αμαρτιας λαου μου φαγονται και εν ταις αδικιαις αυτων λημψονται τας ψυχας
  9. και εσται καθως ο λαος ουτως και ο ιερευς και εκδικησω επ' αυτον τας οδους αυτου και τα διαβουλια αυτου ανταποδωσω
  10. και φαγονται και ου μη εμπλησθωσιν επορνευσαν και ου μη κατευθυνωσιν διοτι τον κυριον εγκατελιπον του
  11. πορνειαν και οινον και μεθυσμα εδεξατο καρδια λαου
  12. εν συμβολοις επηρωτων και εν ραβδοις αυτου απηγγελλον αυτω πνευματι πορνειας επλανηθησαν και εξεπορνευσαν απο του θεου
  13. επι τας κορυφας των ορεων εθυσιαζον και επι τους βουνους εθυον υποκατω δρυος και λευκης και δενδρου συσκιαζοντος οτι καλον σκεπη δια τουτο εκπορνευσουσιν αι θυγατερες υμων και αι νυμφαι υμων
  14. και ου μη επισκεψωμαι επι τας θυγατερας υμων οταν πορνευωσιν και επι τας νυμφας υμων οταν μοιχευωσιν διοτι και αυτοι μετα των πορνων συνεφυροντο και μετα των τετελεσμενων εθυον και ο λαος ο συνιων συνεπλεκετο μετα
  15. συ δε ισραηλ μη αγνοει και ιουδα μη εισπορευεσθε εις γαλγαλα και μη αναβαινετε εις τον οικον ων και μη ομνυετε ζωντα
  16. οτι ως δαμαλις παροιστρωσα παροιστρησεν ισραηλ νυν νεμησει αυτους κυριος ως αμνον εν
  17. μετοχος ειδωλων εφραιμ εθηκεν εαυτω
  18. ηρετισεν χαναναιους πορνευοντες εξεπορνευσαν ηγαπησαν ατιμιαν εκ φρυαγματος
  19. συστροφη πνευματος συ ει εν ταις πτερυξιν αυτης και καταισχυνθησονται εκ των θυσιαστηριων
Hosea 4 Text (Latin)
  1. Audite verbum Domini, filii Israël, quia judicium Domino cum habitatoribus terræ : non est enim veritas, et non est misericordia, et non est scientia Dei in terra.
  2. Maledictum, et mendacium, et homicidium, et furtum, et adulterium inundaverunt, et sanguis sanguinem tetigit.
  3. Propter hoc lugebit terra, et infirmabitur omnis qui habitat in ea, in bestia agri, et in volucre cæli ; sed et pisces maris congregabuntur.
  4. Verumtamen unusquisque non judicet, et non arguatur vir : populus enim tuus sicut hi qui contradicunt sacerdoti.
  5. Et corrues hodie, et corruet etiam propheta tecum. Nocte tacere feci matrem tuam.
  6. Conticuit populus meus, eo quod non habuerit scientiam : quia tu scientiam repulisti, repellam te, ne sacerdotio fungaris mihi ; et oblita es legis Dei tui, obliviscar filiorum tuorum et ego.
  7. Secundum multitudinem eorum sic peccaverunt mihi : gloriam eorum in ignominiam commutabo.
  8. Peccata populi mei comedent, et ad iniquitatem eorum sublevabunt animas eorum.
  9. Et erit sicut populus, sic sacerdos ; et visitabo super eum vias ejus, et cogitationes ejus reddam ei.
  10. Et comedent, et non saturabuntur ; fornicati sunt, et non cessaverunt : quoniam Dominum dereliquerunt in non custodiendo.
  11. Fornicatio, et vinum, et ebrietas auferunt cor.
  12. Populus meus in ligno suo interrogavit, et baculus ejus annuntiavit ei ; spiritus enim fornicationum decepit eos, et fornicati sunt a Deo suo.
  13. Super capita montium sacrificabant, et super colles ascendebant thymiama ; subtus quercum, et populum, et terebinthum, quia bona erat umbra ejus ; ideo fornicabuntur filiæ vestræ, et sponsæ vestræ adulteræ erunt.
  14. Non visitabo super filias vestras cum fuerint fornicatæ, et super sponsas vestras cum adulteraverint, quoniam ipsi cum meretricibus conversabantur, et cum effeminatis sacrificabant ; et populus non intelligens vapulabit.
  15. Si fornicaris tu, Israël, non delinquat saltem Juda ; et nolite ingredi in Galgala, et ne ascenderitis in Bethaven, neque juraveritis : Vivit Dominus !
  16. Quoniam sicut vacca lasciviens declinavit Israël ; nunc pascet eos Dominus, quasi agnum in latitudine.
  17. Particeps idolorum Ephraim : dimitte eum.
  18. Separatum est convivium eorum ; fornicatione fornicati sunt : dilexerunt afferre ignominiam protectores ejus.
  19. Ligavit eum spiritus in alis suis, et confundentur a sacrificiis suis.
Hosea 4 Text (KJV)
  1. Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
  2. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
  3. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
  4. Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.
  5. Therefore shalt thou fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night, and I will destroy thy mother.
  6. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
  7. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
  8. They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.
  9. And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
  10. For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the LORD.
  11. Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.
  12. My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.
  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.
  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.
  15. Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Beth-aven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.
  16. For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
  17. Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.
  18. Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.
  19. The wind hath bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
