Hosea 4:6-8 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

“My people are destroyed because they have no knowledge. You priests have refused to learn, so I will refuse to let you be priests for me. You have forgotten the law of your God, so I will forget your children. They became proud. They sinned more and more against me, so I will change their honor to shame.

“The priests fed on the people’s sins. They wanted more and more of their sin offerings.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. Hosea 4:8 This is a wordplay. The word “sins” also means “sin offerings.” So instead of eating sacrifices, the priests became hungry for sin itself.
