Hosea 9:6-8 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

For even if they escape destruction,
    Egypt shall gather them,
    Memphis shall bury them.
Nettles shall possess their precious things of silver;[a]
    thorns shall be in their tents.

The days of punishment have come,
    the days of recompense have come;
    Israel cries,[b]
‘The prophet is a fool,
    the man of the spirit is mad!’
Because of your great iniquity,
    your hostility is great.
The prophet is a sentinel for my God over Ephraim,
yet a fowler’s snare is on all his ways,
    and hostility in the house of his God.
