Hosea 9:8-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
8 The watchman of Ephraim, the people of my God, is the prophet;
yet a fowler’s snare is on all his ways,
hostility in the house of his God.
9 They have sunk to the depths of corruption,
as in the days of Gibeah;
God will remember their iniquity
and punish their sins.
From Former Glory to a History of Corruption
10 Like grapes in the desert,
I found Israel;
Like the first fruits of the fig tree, its first to ripen,
I looked on your ancestors.
But when they came to Baal-peor
and consecrated themselves to the Shameful One,
they became as abhorrent as the thing they loved.
