Hosea 10
1Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] [is] an empty vine, he brings forth fruit unto himself: according to the multitude of his fruit he has increased the altars; according to the goodness of his land they have made goodly images.
2Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: he shall break down their altars, he shall spoil (plunder; prey; booty) their images.
3For now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared not the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); what then should a king do to us?
4They have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a covenant: thus judgment springs up as hemlock in the furrows of the field.
5The inhabitants of Shomron [watch mountain] shall fear because of the calves of Beit-On [vanity] [house of vanity]: for the people thereof shall mourn over it, and the priests thereof [that] rejoiced on it, for the glory thereof, because it is departed from it.
6It shall be also carried unto Ashur [the level plain] (the land of the sons of Shem (name, renown (great reputation; being well-known))) [for] a present to king Yarav [contender]: Efrayim [Doubly Fruitful] shall receive shame, and Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] shall be ashamed of his own counsel.
7 [As for] Shomron [watch mountain], her king is cut off as the foam upon the water.
8The high places also of On [vanity], the sin of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], shall be destroyed: the thorn and the thistle shall come up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us; and to the hills, Fall on us.
9O Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], youi have sinned from the days of Giv’ah [Hill]: there they stood: the battle in Giv’ah [Hill] against the children of iniquity did not overtake them.
10 [It is] in my desire that I should chastise them; and the people shall be gathered against them, when they shall bind themselves in their two furrows.
11And Efrayim [Doubly Fruitful] [is as] an heifer [that is] taught, [and] loves to trample out [the corn]; but I passed over upon her fair neck: I will make Efrayim [Doubly Fruitful] to ride; Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] shall plow, [and] Ya’akov [Heal of God] shall break his clods.
12Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow (to approve, commend, accept) ground: for [it is] time to seek the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), till he come and rain righteousness upon you.
13You2f have plowed wickedness, you2f have reaped iniquity; you2f have eaten the fruit of lies: because youi did trust in youri way, in the multitude of youri mighty men.
14Therefore shall a tumult arise among youri people, and all youri fortresses shall be spoiled, as Shalman [fire-worshipper] spoiled Beit-Arbel [house of God’s ambush] in the day of battle: the mother was dashed in pieces upon [her] children.
15So shall Beit-El [House of God] do unto you because of your great wickedness: in a morning shall the king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] utterly be cut off.
