Hosea 4:10-12 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

10 They shall eat, but not be satisfied;
    they shall play the whore, but not multiply;
because they have forsaken the Lord
    to devote themselves to 11 whoredom.

The Idolatry of Israel

Wine and new wine
    take away the understanding.
12 My people consult a piece of wood,
    and their divining-rod gives them oracles.
For a spirit of whoredom has led them astray,
    and they have played the whore, forsaking their God.

Hosea 4:10-12 New International Version (NIV)

10 “They will eat but not have enough;
    they will engage in prostitution but not flourish,
because they have deserted the Lord
    to give themselves 11 to prostitution;
old wine and new wine
    take away their understanding.
12 My people consult a wooden idol,
    and a diviner’s rod speaks to them.
A spirit of prostitution leads them astray;
    they are unfaithful to their God.
