Hosea 4:7-9 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

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] So the priests are no different from the people. I will punish them for the things they did. I will pay them back for the wrong things they did.


  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.
