Hosea 7:1-16
1. `When I give healing to Israel, Then revealed is the iniquity of Ephraim, And the wickedness of Samaria, For they have wrought falsehood, And a thief doth come in, Stript off hath a troop in the street,
2. And they do not say to their heart, [That] all their evil I have remembered, Now compassed them have their doings, Over-against My face they have been.
3. With their wickedness they make glad a king, And with their lies -- princes.
4. All of them [are] adulterers, Like a burning oven of a baker, He ceaseth from stirring up after kneading the dough, till its leavening.
5. A day of our king! Princes have polluted themselves [with] the poison of wine, He hath drawn out his hand with scorners.
6. For they have drawn near, As an oven [is] their heart, In their lying in wait all the night sleep doth their baker, Morning! he is burning as a flaming fire.
7. All of them are warm as an oven, And they have devoured their judges, All their kings have fallen, There is none calling unto Me among them.
8. Ephraim! among peoples he mixeth himself, Ephraim hath been a cake unturned.
9. Devoured have strangers his power, And he hath not known, Also old age hath sprinkled [itself] on him, And he hath not known.
10. And humbled hath been the excellency of Israel to his face, And they have not turned back unto Jehovah their God, Nor have they sought Him for all this.
11. And Ephraim is as a simple dove without heart, Egypt they called on -- [to] Asshur they have gone.
12. When they go I spread over them My net, As the fowl of the heavens I bring them down, I chastise them as their company hath heard.
13. Wo to them, for they wandered from Me, Destruction to them, for they transgressed against Me, And I -- I ransom them, and they have spoken lies against Me,
14. And have not cried unto Me with their heart, but howl on their beds, For corn and new wine they assemble themselves, They turn aside against Me.
15. And I instructed -- I strengthened their arms, And concerning Me they think evil!
16. They turn back -- not to the Most High, They have been as a deceitful bow, Fall by sword do their princes, From the insolence of their tongue, This [is] their derision in the land of Egypt!

Hosea 8:1-14
1. `Unto thy mouth -- a trumpet, As an eagle against the house of Jehovah, Because they transgressed My covenant, And against My law they have rebelled.
2. To Me they cry, `My God, we -- Israel -- have known Thee.`
3. Cast off good hath Israel, an enemy pursueth him.
4. They have made kings, and not by Me, They have made princes, and I have not known, Their silver and their gold they have made to them idols, So that they are cut off.
5. Cast off hath thy calf, O Samaria, Burned hath Mine anger against them, Till when are they not capable of purity?
6. For even it [is] of Israel; an artificer made it, And it [is] not God, For the calf of Samaria is fragments!
7. For wind they sow, and a hurricane they reap, Stalk it hath none -- a shoot not yielding grain, If so be it yield -- strangers do swallow it up.
8. Israel hath been swallowed up, Now they have been among nations, As a vessel in which is no delight.
9. For they -- they have gone up [to] Asshur, A wild ass alone by himself [is] Ephraim, They have hired lovers!
10. Also though they hire among nations, Now I gather them, and they are pained a little, From the burden of a king of princes.
11. Because Ephraim did multiply altars to sin, They have been to him altars to sin.
12. I write for him numerous things of My law, As a strange thing they have been reckoned.
13. The sacrifices of Mine offerings! They sacrifice flesh, and they eat, Jehovah hath not accepted them, Now doth He remember their iniquity, And inspect their sin, They -- [to] Egypt they turn back.
14. And forget doth Israel his Maker, and buildeth temples, And Judah hath multiplied cities of defence, And I have sent a fire into his cities, And it hath consumed their palaces!

Psalms 139:7-12
7. Whither do I go from Thy Spirit? And whither from Thy face do I flee?
8. If I ascend the heavens -- there Thou [art], And spread out a couch in Sheol, lo, Thee!
9. I take the wings of morning, I dwell in the uttermost part of the sea,
10. Also there Thy hand doth lead me, And Thy right hand doth hold me.
11. And I say, `Surely darkness bruiseth me, Then night [is] light to me.
12. Also darkness hideth not from Thee, And night as day shineth, as [is] darkness so [is] light.

Proverbs 29:20-20
20. Thou hast seen a man hasty in his words! More hope of a fool than of him.

2 John 1:1-13
1. The Elder to the choice Kyria, and to her children, whom I love in truth, and not I only, but also all those having known the truth,
2. because of the truth that is remaining in us, and with us shall be to the age,
3. there shall be with you grace, kindness, peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
4. I rejoiced exceedingly that I have found of thy children walking in truth, even as a command we did receive from the Father;
5. and now I beseech thee, Kyria, not as writing to thee a new command, but which we had from the beginning, that we may love one another,
6. and this is the love, that we may walk according to His commands; this is the command, even as ye did hear from the beginning, that in it ye may walk,
7. because many leading astray did enter into the world, who are not confessing Jesus Christ coming in flesh; this one is he who is leading astray, and the antichrist.
8. See to yourselves that ye may not lose the things that we wrought, but a full reward may receive;
9. every one who is transgressing, and is not remaining in the teaching of the Christ, hath not God; he who is remaining in the teaching of the Christ, this one hath both the Father and the Son;
10. if any one doth come unto you, and this teaching doth not bear, receive him not into the house, and say not to him, `Hail!`
11. for he who is saying to him, `Hail,` hath fellowship with his evil works.
12. Many things having to write to you, I did not intend through paper and ink, but I hope to come unto you, and speak mouth to mouth, that our joy may be full;
13. salute thee do the children of thy choice sister. Amen.
