Hosea 9:8-10 Living Bible (TLB)

“I appointed the prophets to guard my people, but the people have blocked them at every turn and publicly declared their hatred, even in the Temple of the Lord. The things my people do are as depraved as what they did in Gibeah[a] long ago. The Lord does not forget. He will surely punish them.

10 “O Israel, how well I remember those first delightful days when I led you through the wilderness! How refreshing was your love! How satisfying, like the early figs of summer in their first season! But then you deserted me for Baal-peor,[b] to give yourselves to other gods, and soon you were as foul as they.


  1. Hosea 9:9 what they did in Gibeah, see Judges 19:14ff.
  2. Hosea 9:10 But then you deserted me for Baal-peor, the god of Peor, a city of Moab (Numbers 23).
