nkjv@Hosea:1:2 @ When the LORD began to speak by Hosea, the LORD said to Hosea: "Go, take yourself a wife of harlotry And children of harlotry, For the land has committed great harlotry By departing from the LORD."
nkjv@Hosea:1:3 @ So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.
nkjv@Hosea:1:4 @ Then the LORD said to him: "Call his name Jezreel, For in a little while I will avenge the bloodshed of Jezreel on the house of Jehu, And bring an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel.
nkjv@Hosea:1:5 @ It shall come to pass in that day That I will break the bow of Israel in the Valley of Jezreel."
nkjv@Hosea:1:6 @ And she conceived again and bore a daughter. Then God said to him: "Call her name Lo-Ruhamah, For I will no longer have mercy on the house of Israel, But I will utterly take them away.
nkjv@Hosea:1:7 @ Yet I will have mercy on the house of Judah, Will save them by the LORD their God, And will not save them by bow, Nor by sword or battle, By horses or horsemen."
nkjv@Hosea:1:10 @ "Yet the number of the children of Israel Shall be as the sand of the sea, Which cannot be measured or numbered. And it shall come to pass In the place where it was said to them, "You are not My people,' There it shall be said to them, "You are sons of the living God.'
nkjv@Hosea:1:11 @ Then the children of Judah and the children of Israel Shall be gathered together, And appoint for themselves one head; And they shall come up out of the land, For great will be the day of Jezreel!
nkjv@Hosea:2:4 @ "I will not have mercy on her children, For they are the children of harlotry.
nkjv@Hosea:2:10 @ Now I will uncover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, And no one shall deliver her from My hand.
nkjv@Hosea:2:12 @ "And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, Of which she has said, "These are my wages that my lovers have given me.' So I will make them a forest, And the beasts of the field shall eat them.
nkjv@Hosea:2:13 @ I will punish her For the days of the Baals to which she burned incense. She decked herself with her earrings and jewelry, And went after her lovers; But Me she forgot," says the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:2:15 @ I will give her her vineyards from there, And the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; She shall sing there, As in the days of her youth, As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.
nkjv@Hosea:2:17 @ For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, And they shall be remembered by their name no more.
nkjv@Hosea:2:18 @ In that day I will make a covenant for them With the beasts of the field, With the birds of the air, And with the creeping things of the ground. Bow and sword of battle I will shatter from the earth, To make them lie down safely.
nkjv@Hosea:3:1 @ Then the LORD said to me, "Go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover and is committing adultery, just like the love of the LORD for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and love the raisin cakes of the pagans."
nkjv@Hosea:3:2 @ So I bought her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver, and one and one-half homers of barley.
nkjv@Hosea:3:4 @ For the children of Israel shall abide many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, without ephod or teraphim.
nkjv@Hosea:3:5 @ Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They shall fear the LORD and His goodness in the latter days.
nkjv@Hosea:4:1 @ Hear the word of the LORD, You children of Israel, For the LORD brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land: "There is no truth or mercy Or knowledge of God in the land.
nkjv@Hosea:4:3 @ Therefore the land will mourn; And everyone who dwells there will waste away With the beasts of the field And the birds of the air; Even the fish of the sea will be taken away.
nkjv@Hosea:4:6 @ My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
nkjv@Hosea:4:8 @ They eat up the sin of My people; They set their heart on their iniquity.
nkjv@Hosea:4:12 @ My people ask counsel from their wooden idols, And their staff informs them. For the spirit of harlotry has caused them to stray, And they have played the harlot against their God.
nkjv@Hosea:4:13 @ They offer sacrifices on the mountaintops, And burn incense on the hills, Under oaks, poplars, and terebinths, Because their shade is good. Therefore your daughters commit harlotry, And your brides commit adultery.
nkjv@Hosea:4:14 @ "I will not punish your daughters when they commit harlotry, Nor your brides when they commit adultery; For the men themselves go apart with harlots, And offer sacrifices with a ritual harlot. Therefore people who do not understand will be trampled.
nkjv@Hosea:4:15 @ "Though you, Israel, play the harlot, Let not Judah offend. Do not come up to Gilgal, Nor go up to Beth Aven, Nor swear an oath, saying, "As the LORD lives'--

nkjv@Hosea:5:1 @ "Hear this, O priests! Take heed, O house of Israel! Give ear, O house of the king! For yours is the judgment, Because you have been a snare to Mizpah And a net spread on Tabor.

nkjv@Hosea:5:10 @ "The princes of Judah are like those who remove a landmark; I will pour out My wrath on them like water.
nkjv@Hosea:5:12 @ Therefore I will be to Ephraim like a moth, And to the house of Judah like rottenness.
nkjv@Hosea:5:13 @ "When Ephraim saw his sickness, And Judah saw his wound, Then Ephraim went to Assyria And sent to King Jareb; Yet he cannot cure you, Nor heal you of your wound.
nkjv@Hosea:5:14 @ For I will be like a lion to Ephraim, And like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear them and go away; I will take them away, and no one shall rescue.
nkjv@Hosea:5:15 @ I will return again to My place Till they acknowledge their offense. Then they will seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me."
nkjv@Hosea:6:3 @ Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
nkjv@Hosea:6:5 @ Therefore I have hewn them by the prophets, I have slain them by the words of My mouth; And your judgments are like light that goes forth.
nkjv@Hosea:6:6 @ For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, And the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
nkjv@Hosea:6:8 @ Gilead is a city of evildoers And defiled with blood.
nkjv@Hosea:6:9 @ As bands of robbers lie in wait for a man, So the company of priests murder on the way to Shechem; Surely they commit lewdness.
nkjv@Hosea:6:10 @ I have seen a horrible thing in the house of Israel: There is the harlotry of Ephraim; Israel is defiled.
nkjv@Hosea:6:11 @ Also, O Judah, a harvest is appointed for you, When I return the captives of My people.
nkjv@Hosea:7:1 @ "When I would have healed Israel, Then the iniquity of Ephraim was uncovered, And the wickedness of Samaria. For they have committed fraud; A thief comes in; A band of robbers takes spoil outside.
nkjv@Hosea:7:5 @ In the day of our king Princes have made him sick, inflamed with wine; He stretched out his hand with scoffers.
nkjv@Hosea:7:10 @ And the pride of Israel testifies to his face, But they do not return to the LORD their God, Nor seek Him for all this.
nkjv@Hosea:7:12 @ Wherever they go, I will spread My net on them; I will bring them down like birds of the air; I will chastise them According to what their congregation has heard.
nkjv@Hosea:7:16 @ They return, but not to the Most High; They are like a treacherous bow. Their princes shall fall by the sword For the cursings of their tongue. This shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.
nkjv@Hosea:8:1 @ "Set the trumpet to your mouth! He shall come like an eagle against the house of the LORD, Because they have transgressed My covenant And rebelled against My law.
nkjv@Hosea:8:4 @ "They set up kings, but not by Me; They made princes, but I did not acknowledge them. From their silver and gold They made idols for themselves-- That they might be cut off.
nkjv@Hosea:8:6 @ For from Israel is even this: A workman made it, and it is not God; But the calf of Samaria shall be broken to pieces.
nkjv@Hosea:8:10 @ Yes, though they have hired among the nations, Now I will gather them; And they shall sorrow a little, Because of the burden of the king of princes.
nkjv@Hosea:8:12 @ I have written for him the great things of My law, But they were considered a strange thing.
nkjv@Hosea:8:13 @ For the sacrifices of My offerings they sacrifice flesh and eat it, But the LORD does not accept them. Now He will remember their iniquity and punish their sins. They shall return to Egypt.
nkjv@Hosea:9:4 @ They shall not offer wine offerings to the LORD, Nor shall their sacrifices be pleasing to Him. It shall be like bread of mourners to them; All who eat it shall be defiled. For their bread shall be for their own life; It shall not come into the house of the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:9:5 @ What will you do in the appointed day, And in the day of the feast of the LORD?
nkjv@Hosea:9:6 @ For indeed they are gone because of destruction. Egypt shall gather them up; Memphis shall bury them. Nettles shall possess their valuables of silver; Thorns shall be in their tents.
nkjv@Hosea:9:7 @ The days of punishment have come; The days of recompense have come. Israel knows! The prophet is a fool, The spiritual man is insane, Because of the greatness of your iniquity and great enmity.
nkjv@Hosea:9:8 @ The watchman of Ephraim is with my God; But the prophet is a fowler's snare in all his ways-- Enmity in the house of his God.
nkjv@Hosea:9:9 @ They are deeply corrupted, As in the days of Gibeah. He will remember their iniquity; He will punish their sins.
nkjv@Hosea:9:15 @ "All their wickedness is in Gilgal, For there I hated them. Because of the evil of their deeds I will drive them from My house; I will love them no more. All their princes are rebellious.
nkjv@Hosea:9:16 @ Ephraim is stricken, Their root is dried up; They shall bear no fruit. Yes, were they to bear children, I would kill the darlings of their womb."
nkjv@Hosea:10:1 @ Israel empties his vine; He brings forth fruit for himself. According to the multitude of his fruit He has increased the altars; According to the bounty of his land They have embellished his sacred pillars.
nkjv@Hosea:10:4 @ They have spoken words, Swearing falsely in making a covenant. Thus judgment springs up like hemlock in the furrows of the field.
nkjv@Hosea:10:5 @ The inhabitants of Samaria fear Because of the calf of Beth Aven. For its people mourn for it, And its priests shriek for it-- Because its glory has departed from it.
nkjv@Hosea:10:6 @ The idol also shall be carried to Assyria As a present for King Jareb. Ephraim shall receive shame, And Israel shall be ashamed of his own counsel.
nkjv@Hosea:10:7 @ As for Samaria, her king is cut off Like a twig on the water.
nkjv@Hosea:10:8 @ Also the high places of Aven, the sin of Israel, Shall be destroyed. The thorn and thistle shall grow on their altars; They shall say to the mountains, "Cover us!" And to the hills, "Fall on us!"
nkjv@Hosea:10:9 @ "O Israel, you have sinned from the days of Gibeah; There they stood. The battle in Gibeah against the children of iniquity Did not overtake them.
nkjv@Hosea:10:13 @ You have plowed wickedness; You have reaped iniquity. You have eaten the fruit of lies, Because you trusted in your own way, In the multitude of your mighty men.
nkjv@Hosea:10:14 @ Therefore tumult shall arise among your people, And all your fortresses shall be plundered As Shalman plundered Beth Arbel in the day of battle-- A mother dashed in pieces upon her children.
nkjv@Hosea:10:15 @ Thus it shall be done to you, O Bethel, Because of your great wickedness. At dawn the king of Israel Shall be cut off utterly.

nkjv@Hosea:11:9 @ I will not execute the fierceness of My anger; I will not again destroy Ephraim. For I am God, and not man, The Holy One in your midst; And I will not come with terror.
nkjv@Hosea:11:11 @ They shall come trembling like a bird from Egypt, Like a dove from the land of Assyria. And I will let them dwell in their houses," Says the LORD.
nkjv@Hosea:11:12 @ "Ephraim has encircled Me with lies, And the house of Israel with deceit; But Judah still walks with God, Even with the Holy One who is faithful.
nkjv@Hosea:12:5 @ That is, the LORD God of hosts. The LORD is His memorable name.
nkjv@Hosea:12:6 @ So you, by the help of your God, return; Observe mercy and justice, And wait on your God continually.
nkjv@Hosea:12:9 @ "But I am the LORD your God, Ever since the land of Egypt; I will again make you dwell in tents, As in the days of the appointed feast.
nkjv@Hosea:12:10 @ I have also spoken by the prophets, And have multiplied visions; I have given symbols through the witness of the prophets."
nkjv@Hosea:12:11 @ Though Gilead has idols-- Surely they are vanity-- Though they sacrifice bulls in Gilgal, Indeed their altars shall be heaps in the furrows of the field.
nkjv@Hosea:12:12 @ Jacob fled to the country of Syria; Israel served for a spouse, And for a wife he tended sheep.
nkjv@Hosea:12:13 @ By a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, And by a prophet he was preserved.
nkjv@Hosea:12:14 @ Ephraim provoked Him to anger most bitterly; Therefore his Lord will leave the guilt of his bloodshed upon him, And return his reproach upon him.
nkjv@Hosea:13:1 @ When Ephraim spoke, trembling, He exalted himself in Israel; But when he offended through Baal worship, he died.
nkjv@Hosea:13:2 @ Now they sin more and more, And have made for themselves molded images, Idols of their silver, according to their skill; All of it is the work of craftsmen. They say of them, "Let the men who sacrifice kiss the calves!"
nkjv@Hosea:13:3 @ Therefore they shall be like the morning cloud And like the early dew that passes away, Like chaff blown off from a threshing floor And like smoke from a chimney.
nkjv@Hosea:13:4 @ "Yet I am the LORD your God Ever since the land of Egypt, And you shall know no God but Me; For there is no savior besides Me.
nkjv@Hosea:13:5 @ I knew you in the wilderness, In the land of great drought.
nkjv@Hosea:13:8 @ I will meet them like a bear deprived of her cubs; I will tear open their rib cage, And there I will devour them like a lion. The wild beast shall tear them.
nkjv@Hosea:13:12 @ "The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; His sin is stored up.
nkjv@Hosea:13:13 @ The sorrows of a woman in childbirth shall come upon him. He is an unwise son, For he should not stay long where children are born.
nkjv@Hosea:13:14 @ "I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. O Death, I will be your plagues! O Grave, I will be your destruction! Pity is hidden from My eyes."
nkjv@Hosea:13:15 @ Though he is fruitful among his brethren, An east wind shall come; The wind of the LORD shall come up from the wilderness. Then his spring shall become dry, And his fountain shall be dried up. He shall plunder the treasury of every desirable prize.
nkjv@Hosea:14:1 @ O Israel, return to the LORD your God, For you have stumbled because of your iniquity;
nkjv@Hosea:14:2 @ Take words with you, And return to the LORD. Say to Him, "Take away all iniquity; Receive us graciously, For we will offer the sacrifices of our lips.
nkjv@Hosea:14:3 @ Assyria shall not save us, We will not ride on horses, Nor will we say anymore to the work of our hands, "You are our gods.' For in You the fatherless finds mercy."
nkjv@Hosea:14:7 @ Those who dwell under his shadow shall return; They shall be revived like grain, And grow like a vine. Their scent shall be like the wine of Lebanon.
nkjv@Hosea:14:9 @ Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right; The righteous walk in them, But transgressors stumble in them.

nkjv@Joel:1:12 @ The vine has dried up, And the fig tree has withered; The pomegranate tree, The palm tree also, And the apple tree-- All the trees of the field are withered; Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.
nkjv@Joel:1:13 @ Gird yourselves and lament, you priests; Wail, you who minister before the altar; Come, lie all night in sackcloth, You who minister to my God; For the grain offering and the drink offering Are withheld from the house of your God.

nkjv@Joel:1:20 @ The beasts of the field also cry out to You, For the water brooks are dried up, And fire has devoured the open pastures.
nkjv@Joel:2:1 @ Blow the trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; For the day of the LORD is coming, For it is at hand:
nkjv@Joel:2:2 @ A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, The like of whom has never been; Nor will there ever be any such after them, Even for many successive generations.
nkjv@Joel:2:3 @ A fire devours before them, And behind them a flame burns; The land is like the Garden of Eden before them, And behind them a desolate wilderness; Surely nothing shall escape them.
nkjv@Joel:2:4 @ Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; And like swift steeds, so they run.
nkjv@Joel:2:5 @ With a noise like chariots Over mountaintops they leap, Like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble, Like a strong people set in battle array.
nkjv@Joel:2:6 @ Before them the people writhe in pain; All faces are drained of color.
nkjv@Joel:2:7 @ They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like men of war; Every one marches in formation, And they do not break ranks.

nkjv@Joel:2:14 @ Who knows if He will turn and relent, And leave a blessing behind Him-- A grain offering and a drink offering For the LORD your God?
