Hosea 7:1-3 Expanded Bible (EXB)

When I heal Israel,
    Israel’s sin will ·go away [or be revealed/exposed],
and so will Samaria’s evil.

“They ·cheat a lot [practice deceit; commit fraud]!
    Thieves ·break into houses [L come in],
    and ·robbers [gangs] ·are in the streets [raid/pillage outside].
·It never enters their minds [L They never say in their hearts]
    that I remember all their evil deeds.
The bad things they do ·are all around [engulf; surround] them;
    they are ·right in front of me [always before my face].

Israel’s Evil Kings

“They make the king happy with their wickedness;
    their ·rulers [princes] are glad with their lies.

Hosea 7:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

whenever I would heal Israel,
the sins of Ephraim are exposed
    and the crimes of Samaria revealed.
They practice deceit,
    thieves break into houses,
    bandits rob in the streets;
but they do not realize
    that I remember all their evil deeds.
Their sins engulf them;
    they are always before me.

“They delight the king with their wickedness,
    the princes with their lies.
