Hosea 4:7-9 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
7 The more priests there were,
the more they sinned against me.
They have traded their glorious God for that shameful god named Baal.
8 They live off the sins of my people.
And they want them to keep on sinning.
9 So here is what I will do.
I will punish people and priests alike.
I will judge them because of their sinful lives.
I will pay them back
for the evil things they have done.
