Hosea 9:8-10 The Voice (VOICE)

The prophet stands watch over Ephraim along with God,[a]
    but birds’ traps are set all along his paths;
Even in the temple of his God they show their hostility.
They’ve become deeply depraved, as in the days of Gibeah.
    God won’t overlook their wickedness; He’ll punish them for their sins.

10 Eternal One: When I discovered Israel, he was a rare find,
        like grapes in the wilderness, like early figs on a young fig tree.
    I met your ancestors;
        when they came to Baal-peor,
    They dedicated themselves through their worship to an object of shame,
        and they became as detestable as the thing they loved.
