Hosea 9:7-9 New Life Version (NLV)
7 The days of punishment have come, the days when the people must pay for their sins. Let Israel know this. The man who tells what will happen in the future is a fool. The man who is led by the spirit is crazy. This is because of all your sin and anger. 8 Ephraim was meant to be a watchman who would speak for God. Yet there is a net in all his ways, and only anger in the house of his God. 9 They have gone deep into sin, as in the days of Gibeah. The Lord will remember their wrong-doing, and will punish their sins.
