Hosea 9:7-9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

They have come, the days of punishment!
    they have come, the days of recompense!
Let Israel know it!
    “The prophet is a fool,
    the man of the spirit is mad!”
Because your iniquity is great,
    great, too, is your hostility.
[a]The watchman of Ephraim, the people of my God, is the prophet;
    yet a fowler’s snare is on all his ways,
    hostility in the house of his God.
They have sunk to the depths of corruption,
    as in the days of Gibeah;[b]
God will remember their iniquity
    and punish their sins.

Footnotes:

  1. 9:8 Prophets, like Hosea himself, are called to be sentinels for Israel, warning Israel of God’s coming wrath (see Ez 3:17; 33:7), but often meet rejection.
  2. 9:9 The days of Gibeah: the precise allusion is not clear. Perhaps it is a reference to the outrage committed at Gibeah in the days of the judges (Jgs 19–21), or to questions surrounding Saul’s kingship at Gibeah (1 Sm 10:26; 14:2; 22:6).
