Hosea 13:1-3 Expanded Bible (EXB)

The Final Word Against Israel

13 ·People used to fear the tribe of Ephraim [L When Ephraim spoke, there was trembling];
    they were ·important people [L exalted] in Israel.
But they sinned by worshiping Baal,
    ·so they must die [L and died].
But they still keep on sinning more and more.
    They make ·idols of their silver [metal images],
idols that are ·cleverly [skillfully] made,
    the work of a craftsman.
·Yet the people of Israel say to each other [or It is said of them],
    “·Kiss those calf idols and sacrifice to them [or Those who sacrifice to the calf idol are calf kissers!; or They offer human sacrifices and kiss calf-idols].”
So those people will be like the morning mist;
    they will disappear like the morning dew.
They will be like chaff ·blown [that swirls away] from the threshing floor,
    like smoke going out a window.
