Hosea 7:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 7

When I would have restored the fortunes of my people,
    when I would have healed Israel,
The guilt of Ephraim was revealed,
    the wickedness of Samaria:
    They practiced falsehood.
Thieves break in,
    bandits roam outside.
Yet they do not call to mind
    that I remember all their wickedness.
Now their crimes surround them,
    present to my sight.

Israel’s Domestic Politics[a]

With their wickedness they make the king rejoice,
    the princes too, with their treacherous deeds.

Footnotes:

  1. 7:3–7 This passage perhaps refers to a conspiracy at the royal court. Between the death of Jeroboam II (743 B.C.) and the fall of Samaria (722/721), nearly all the kings were murdered (2 Kgs 15:10, 14, 25, 30).
