Hosea 12 Maori Bible (MAORI)

12  Ko ta Eparaima kai ko te hau, e whaia ana e ia te hau marangai: i nga ra katoa e whakanuia ana e ia te teka me te whakangaro; e whakarite kawenata ana ratou ki te Ahiriana, a e kawea ana he hinu ki Ihipa.

Na he whakawa ta Ihowa ki a Hura, ka utaina ano e ia ki runga ki a Hakopa nga mea rite ki ona ara; ka rite ki ana mahi tana utu ki a ia.

I roto i te kopu i hopukia e ia tona tuakana ki te rekereke; a i a ia ka tangata i kaha ia ki te Atua;

Ae ra, i kaha ia ki te anahera, a taea ana e ia: i tangi ia, i inoi ki a ia: i tutaki ia ki a ia ki Peteere, a korero ana ia ki a tatou i reira;

Ara a Ihowa, te Atua o nga mano; ko Ihowa tona maharatanga.

Na reira tahuri koe ki tou Atua: puritia te mahi tohu me te tika, tatari tonu ki tou Atua.

He kaihokohoko ia, kei tona ringa nga pauna tinihanga: e aroha ana ia ki te tukino.

I mea ano a Eparaima, He pono kua whai taonga ahau, kua kitea e ahau he rawa moku: i aku mahi katoa e kore e kitea e ratou he kino, ara he hara ki ahau.

Na ko Ihowa ahau, ko tou Atua, no te whenua o Ihipa mai ra ano; tenei ake ka meinga ano koe e ahau kia noho teneti; kia pera me to nga ra o te hakari nui.

10 Kua korero ano ahau ki nga poropiti, a kua whakamahangia e ahau nga whakakitenga; na te mahi minita a nga poropiti i korero ai ahau i nga kupu whakarite.

11 Ko te hara ranei a Kireara? ina, he mea teka kau ratou; e patu kau ana ratou ki Kirikara hei whakahere: ae ra, he rite a ratou aata ki nga puranga i nga moa o nga mara.

12 I rere ano a Hakopa ki te mara a Arame, a mahi ana a Iharaira hei utu wahine; hei utu wahine i tiaki hipi ai ia.

13 I kawea mai ano e Ihowa, ara e te poropiti, a Iharaira i Ihipa, na te poropiti ano ia i ora ai.

14 I whakapataritari a Eparaima ki a ia, kawa rawa: mo reira ka waiho e ia tona toto i runga i a ia, ka meinga ano tona ingoa kino e tona ariki kia hoki atu ki a ia.

Hosea 12 New International Version (NIV)

12 [a]Ephraim feeds on the wind;
    he pursues the east wind all day
    and multiplies lies and violence.
He makes a treaty with Assyria
    and sends olive oil to Egypt.
The Lord has a charge to bring against Judah;
    he will punish Jacob[b] according to his ways
    and repay him according to his deeds.
In the womb he grasped his brother’s heel;
    as a man he struggled with God.
He struggled with the angel and overcame him;
    he wept and begged for his favor.
He found him at Bethel
    and talked with him there—
the Lord God Almighty,
    the Lord is his name!
But you must return to your God;
    maintain love and justice,
    and wait for your God always.

The merchant uses dishonest scales
    and loves to defraud.
Ephraim boasts,
    “I am very rich; I have become wealthy.
With all my wealth they will not find in me
    any iniquity or sin.”

“I have been the Lord your God
    ever since you came out of Egypt;
I will make you live in tents again,
    as in the days of your appointed festivals.
10 I spoke to the prophets,
    gave them many visions
    and told parables through them.”

11 Is Gilead wicked?
    Its people are worthless!
Do they sacrifice bulls in Gilgal?
    Their altars will be like piles of stones
    on a plowed field.
12 Jacob fled to the country of Aram[c];
    Israel served to get a wife,
    and to pay for her he tended sheep.
13 The Lord used a prophet to bring Israel up from Egypt,
    by a prophet he cared for him.
14 But Ephraim has aroused his bitter anger;
    his Lord will leave on him the guilt of his bloodshed
    and will repay him for his contempt.
