Hosea 9:8-10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

The watchman of Ephraim [a]should be with my God: but the Prophet is the snare of a fowler in all his ways, and hatred in the house of his God.

They [b]are deeply set: they are corrupt as in the days of Gibeah: therefore he will remember their iniquity, he will visit their sins.

10 I found Israel like [c]grapes in the wilderness: I saw your fathers as the first ripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baal Peor, and separated themselves unto that shame, and their abominations were according to [d]their lovers.


  1. Hosea 9:8 The Prophet’s duty is to bring men to God, and not to be a snare to pull them from God.
  2. Hosea 9:9 This people is so rooted in their wickedness, that Gibeah which was like to Sodom, was never more corrupt, Judg. 19:22.
  3. Hosea 9:10 Meaning, that he so esteemed them and delighted in them.
  4. Hosea 9:10 They were as abominable unto me, as their lovers the idols.
