Hosea 13:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

The People of Israel Will Be Punished for Their Idolatry

    When the tribe of Ephraim spoke, people trembled.
    The people of Ephraim were important in Israel.
        Then they became guilty of worshiping Baal,
            so they must die.
They keep on sinning more and more.
    They make idols from silver for themselves.
        These idols are skillfully made.
            All of them are the work of craftsmen.
People say this about the Israelites: “They offer human sacrifices
    and kiss calf-shaped idols.”
That is why they will be like fog in the morning
    and like morning dew that disappears quickly.
        They will be like straw blown away from threshing floors.[a]
        They will be like smoke rising from chimneys.
