Daniel is informed

river, ^How long sliall it he to the end of
these wonders ?

7 And I heard the man clothed in linen,
which was upon the waters of the river,
when he 'held up his right hand and his left
hand unto heaven, and sware by him " that
liveth for ever, ' that it shall he for a time,
times, and llan half; "and when he shall have
accomplished to scatter the power of ^the
holy people, all these things shall be finished.

8 And I heard, but I understood not: then
said I, O my Lord, what shall he the end of
these things ?

9 And he said. Go thy way, Daniel : for
the words are closed up and sealed ^till the
time of the end.

1 Hosea, to shew God's judgment for spiritual whore-^
dom, taketh Gamer, 4 and hath by her Jezreel, 6 Lo-
ruhamah, 8 and Lo-ammi. 10 The restoration of
Judah and Israel.

THE word of the Lord that came unto
Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of
Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings
of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the
son of Joash king of Israel.

2 The beginning of the word of the
Lord by Hosea. And the Lord said to
Hosea, '^Go, take unto thee a wife of whore-
doms and children of whoredoms ; for •» the
land hath committed great whoredom, de-
partitig from the Lord.

3 So he went and took Gomer the daugh-
ter of Diblaim ; which conceived, and bare
him a son.

4 And the Lord said unto him. Call his
name Jezreel; for yet a little while, "and I
will t avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the
house of Jehu, ^ and will cause to cease the
kingdom of the house of Israel.

5 «And it shall come to pass at that day,
that I will break the bow of Israel in the
valley of Jezreel.

6 IT And she conceived again and bare a
daughter. And God . said unto him. Call
her name || Lo-ruhamah : '"for 1 1 will no more
have mercy upon the house of Israel ; || but
I will utterly take them away.

7 srBut I will have mercy upon the house
of Judah, and will save them by the Lord
their God, and ""will not save them by bow,

1 By the expiation of an adulteress,'^: is shewed the de-
solation of Isi'ael before their restoration.

THEN said the Lord unto me, ^ Go yet,
love a woman beloved of her ''friend, yet
an adulteress, according to the love of the
Lord toward the children of Israel, who look
to other gods, and love flagons fof wine.

2 So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces
of silver, and /or an. homer of barley,andan
fhalf homer of barley:

3 And I said unto her, Thou shalt " abide
for me many days ; thou shalt not play the
harlot, and thou shalt not be for another
man : so will I also he for thee.

4 For the children of Israel shall abide
many days ^ without a king, and without a
prince, and Avithout a sacrifice, and without
tan image, and without an ^ephod, and
without '"teraphim:

5 Afterward shall the children of Israel
return, and s seek the Lord their God, and
'' David their king ; and shall fear the Lord
and his goodness in the 'latter days.


1 God's judgments against the sins of the people, 6 and
of the priests, 12 and against their idolatry. 15 Judah
is exhorted to talce warning by Israel's calamity.

HEAR the word of the Lord, ye chil-
dren of Israel: for the Lord hath a
^controversy with the inhabitants of the land,
because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor
i" knowledge of God in the land.

2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and
stealing, and committing adultery, they break

God's judgments against the priests,

* every one that dwelleth therein shall lan-
guish, 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 an-
other : 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 f destroy thy mother.

6 Iff My people are f destroyed for lack of
knowledge : because thou hast rejected know-
ledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt
be no priest to me : seeing thou hast forgot-
ten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy

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 t set their heart on their iniquity.

9 And there shall be, ''like people, like
priest: and I will t punish them for their
ways, and t 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 IT 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 P 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 II 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 t-hat ' doth
not understand shall || fall.

15 H Though thouj 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 back-
sliding heifer : now the Lord will feed them
as a lamb in a large place.

they repent.

HEAR ye this, O priests ; and hearken,
ye house of Israel; and give ye ear, O
house of the king ; for judgment is toward
you, because "ye have been a snare on Miz-
pah, and a net spread upon Tabor.

2 And the revolters are ''profound to make

of them all.

3 "I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid
from me : for now, O Ephraim, •' thou com-
mittest whoredom, and Israel is defiled.

4 t II They will not frame their doings to
turn unto their God : for ^the spirit of whore-
doms is in the midst of them, and they have
not known the Lord.

5 And ''the pride of Israel doth testify to
his face : therefore shall Israel and Ephraim
fall in their iniquity ; Judah also shall fall
with them.

6 sThey shall go with their flocks and
with their herds to seek the Lord ; but they
shall not find him ; he hath withdrawn him-
self from them.

7 They have '' dealt treacherously against
the Lord : for they have begotten strange
children : now shall ' a month devour them
with their portions.

8 ■'Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah, and the
trumpet in Ramah : ' cry aloud at ■" Beth-
aven, "after thee, O Benjamin.

«iade known that which shall surely be.

A reproof of manifold sins.

raising after he hath kneaded the dough, un-
til it be leavened.

5 In the day of our king the princes have
made him sick || with bottles of wine ; he
stretched out his hand with s corners.

6 For they have || made ready their heart
like an oven, while they lie in wait : their
baker sleepeth all the night; in the morning
it burneth as a flaming fire.

7 They are all hot as an oven, and have
devoured their judges; fall their kings ""are
fallen : Hhere is none among them that call-
eth unto me :

8 Ephraim, he ^ hath mixed himself among
the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.

9 'Strangers have devoured his strength,
and he knoweth it not : yea, gray hairs are
t here and there upon him,- yet he knoweth

10 And the ""pride of Israel testifieth to
his face : and " they do not return to the
Lord their God, nor seek him for all this.

11 IT "Ephraim also is like a silly dove
without heart: Pthey call to Egypt, they go
to Assyria.

12 When they shall go, il will s'pread my
net upon them; I will bring them down as
the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them,
■^as their congregation hath heard.
