Modern English Version
2 Swearing, lying, and killing,
and stealing and adultery
and bloodshed follows bloodshed.
3 Therefore the land dries up,
and everyone who lives in it withers
with the beasts of the field
and the birds of the sky;
even the fish of the sea disappear.
4 Yet let no one contend,
and let none reprove another,
for your people are like those
that contend with a priest.[a]
- Hosea 4:4 Meaning of Heb. uncertain.
