Hosea 4:11-13 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

11     whoredom.[a]
Wine and new wine take away the understanding.[b]
12     My people,
consult their wooden idols,[c]
    and their divining rod gives them oracles;
because a spirit of whoredom led them astray,
    and they played the whore from under their God.[d]
13 On the tops of the mountains they sacrifice,
    and on the hills they make offerings,
under oak, poplar, and terebinth,
    because their[e] shade is good.
Therefore your daughters play the whore,
    and all your daughters-in-law[f] commit adultery.
