AND BURN INCENSE UPON THE HILLS,HOSEA PAGE 850

Ho:4:13: They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.
Ho:4:14: I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.
Ho:4:15: Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Beth-aven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.
Ho:4:16: For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
Ho:4:17: Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.
Ho:4:18: Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.
Ho:4:19: The wind hath bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.

Chapter 5

Ho:5:1: Hear ye this, O priests; and hearken, ye house of Israel; and give ye ear, O house of the king; for judgment is toward you, because ye have been a snare on Mizpah, and a net spread upon Tabor.
Ho:5:2: And the revolters are profound to make slaughter, though I have been a rebuker of them all.
Ho:5:3: I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me: for now, O Ephraim, thou committest whoredom, and Israel is defiled.
Ho:5:4: They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD.
Ho:5:5: And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them.
Ho:5:6: They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.
Ho:5:7: They have dealt treacherously against the LORD: for they have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them with their portions.
Ho:5:8: Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah: cry aloud at Beth-aven, after thee, O Benjamin.
Ho:5:9: Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.
Ho:5:10: The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: therefore I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.
Ho:5:11: Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment, because he willingly walked after the commandment.
Ho:5:12: Therefore will I be unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.
Ho:5:13: When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.
Ho:5:14: For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.
Ho:5:15: I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.

Ho:6:3: Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
