Hosea 9:7-9 Expanded Bible (EXB)

The time of punishment has come,
    the ·time to pay for sins [L days of recompense/vengeance].
    Let Israel know this:
·You think the [L The] prophet is a fool,
    and ·you say the [L the] ·spiritual person [Spirit-inspired person] is crazy.
·You [or This is because you] have sinned very much,
    and your hatred is great.
·Is Israel a watchman?
    Are God’s people prophets? [or The prophet is a watchman over Ephraim on God’s behalf]
·Everywhere Israel goes, traps are set for him [or …yet traps/snares await him on all his paths].
    ·He is an enemy [or …and hatred even] in God’s house.
·The people of Israel [L They] have gone deep into ·sin [depravity; corruption]
    as ·the people of Gibeah did [L in the days of Gibeah; Judg. 19–20].
The Lord will remember ·the evil things they have done [their wickedness/iniquity],
    and he will punish their sins.
