Hosea 4:10-12 Expanded Bible (EXB)

10 “They will eat
    but not have enough;
they will ·have sexual relations with the prostitutes [or behave like prostitutes],
    but they will not ·have children [or gain anything; L multiply; increase],
because they have ·left [deserted; abandoned] the Lord
to give themselves to 11     ·prostitution [immorality],
to old and new wine,
    which take away ·their ability to understand [L the heart].

God’s Case Against the People

12 “My people ask wooden idols for ·advice [counsel];
    they ask ·those sticks of wood [or divining rods/staffs] to advise them!
·Like prostitutes, they have chased after other gods [L A spirit/wind of prostitution leads/blows them astray]
    ·and have left [committing adultery against; being unfaithful to] their own God.
