Hosea 9:8-10 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Prophets are God’s watchmen over Ephraim.
    Yet, traps are set on every prophet’s path,
        and people are hostile in the temple of their God.
People have deeply corrupted themselves as they once did at Gibeah.
    God will remember their wickedness
        and punish them because of their sins.

Israel Is Like Rotten Grapes or Rotten Figs

10 The Lord said, “When I found Israel,
    it was like finding grapes in the desert.
When I saw your ancestors,
    it was like seeing the first figs of the harvest.
        But they went to Baal Peor and worshiped shameful idols.
            They became as disgusting as the things they worshiped.
