Hosea 13:1-2 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
Yahweh’s Judgment on Idolatrous Israel
13 When Ephraim spoke, there was terror;
he was exalted in Israel,
but he incurred guilt through Baal and died.
2 And now they sin again,
and they make for themselves a molten idol,
idols from their silver metal according to their understanding,
all of them the work of skilled craftsmen.
To these they say, “Sacrifice!”
People are kissing bull calves.
