Hosea 7:1-3 New English Translation (NET Bible)

whenever I want to heal Israel,
the sin of Ephraim is revealed,
and the evil deeds of Samaria are exposed.
For they do what is wrong;
thieves break into houses,
and gangs rob people out in the streets.
They do not realize[a]
that I remember all their wicked deeds.
Their evil deeds have now surrounded them;
their sinful deeds are always before me.[b]

Political Intrigue and Conspiracy in the Palace

The royal advisers delight the king with their evil schemes,
the princes make him glad with their lies.

  2. Hosea 7:2 tn Heb “they [the sinful deeds] are before my face” (so KJV, NASB, NRSV); cf. NCV “they are right in front of me.”
