Hosea 9:8-10 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

The prophet is God’s watchman
    to warn Israel of danger.
But everywhere he goes you set traps for him.
    You treat him as an enemy in God’s own land.
The men of Israel have become as sinful
    as the men of Gibeah[a] were.
The Lord will remember the evil things they have done.
    He will punish them for their sins.

10 “When I found Israel,
    it was like finding grapes in the desert.
Your ancestors were like
    finding the first figs on the tree.
But when they came to Baal Peor,
    they began worshiping an idol.
    They became as disgusting as the thing they worshiped.


  1. 9:9 Gibeah The sins of the men of Gibeah caused a civil war. See Judges 19–21.
