Hosea 10

    Israel's Sin and Captivity

  1. Israel is a luxuriant vinethat yields its fruit.The more his fruit increasedthe more altars he built;as his country improvedhe improved his pillars.
  2. "Their heart is false;now they must bear their guilt.The Lord a will break down their altars,and destroy their pillars."
  3. "For now they will say: ""We have no king,for we fear not the Lord,and a king, what could he do for us?"""
