Hosea 10:5-8 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

The inhabitants of Samar′ia tremble
    for the calf[a] of Beth-a′ven.
Its people shall mourn for it,
    and its idolatrous priests shall wail[b] over it,
    over its glory which has departed from it.
Yea, the thing itself shall be carried to Assyria,
    as tribute to the great king.[c]
E′phraim shall be put to shame,
    and Israel shall be ashamed of his idol.[d]

Samar′ia’s king shall perish,
    like a chip on the face of the waters.
The high places of Aven, the sin of Israel,
    shall be destroyed.
Thorn and thistle shall grow up
    on their altars;
and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us,
    and to the hills, Fall upon us.
