Hosea 4:7-9 New Living Translation (NLT)

The more priests there are,
    the more they sin against me.
They have exchanged the glory of God
    for the shame of idols.[a]

“When the people bring their sin offerings, the priests get fed.
    So the priests are glad when the people sin!
‘And what the priests do, the people also do.’
    So now I will punish both priests and people
    for their wicked deeds.
