8:1 [Set] the trumpet [H7782] to thy mouth [H2441] . [He shall come] as an eagle [H5404] against the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , because they have transgressed [H5674] my covenant [H1285] , and trespassed [H6586] against my law [H8451] .(thy: Heb. the roof of thy)
8:2 Israel [H3478] shall cry [H2199] unto me, My God [H430] , we know [H3045] thee.
8:3 Israel [H3478] hath cast off [H2186] [the thing that is] good [H2896] : the enemy [H341] shall pursue [H7291] him.
8:4 They have set up kings [H4427] , but not by me: they have made princes [H7786] , and I knew [H3045] [it] not: of their silver [H3701] and their gold [H2091] have they made [H6213] them idols [H6091] , that they may be cut off [H3772] .
8:5 Thy calf [H5695] , O Samaria [H8111] , hath cast [H2186] [thee] off; mine anger [H639] is kindled [H2734] against them: how long [will it be] ere [H3808] they attain [H3201] to innocency [H5356] ?
8:6 For from Israel [H3478] [was] it also: the workman [H2796] made [H6213] it; therefore it [is] not God [H430] : but the calf [H5695] of Samaria [H8111] shall be broken in pieces [H7616] .
8:7 For they have sown [H2232] the wind [H7307] , and they shall reap [H7114] the whirlwind [H5492] : it hath no stalk [H7054] : the bud [H6780] shall yield [H6213] no meal [H7058] : if [H194] so be it yield [H6213] , the strangers [H2114] shall swallow it up [H1104] .(stalk: or, standing corn)
8:8 Israel [H3478] is swallowed up [H1104] : now shall they be among the Gentiles [H1471] as a vessel [H3627] wherein [is] no pleasure [H2656] .
8:9 For they are gone up [H5927] to Assyria [H804] , a wild ass [H6501] alone [H909] by himself: Ephraim [H669] hath hired [H8566] lovers [H158] .(lovers: Heb. loves)
8:10 Yea, though they have hired [H8566] among the nations [H1471] , now will I gather [H6908] them, and they shall sorrow [H2490] a little [H4592] for the burden [H4853] of the king [H4428] of princes [H8269] .(sorrow: or, begin)(a: or, in a little while)
8:11 Because Ephraim [H669] hath made many [H7235] altars [H4196] to sin [H2398] , altars [H4196] shall be unto him to sin [H2398] .
8:12 I have written [H3789] to him the great things [H7230] [H7239] of my law [H8451] , [but] they were counted [H2803] as a strange thing [H2114] .
8:13 They sacrifice [H2076] flesh [H1320] [for] the sacrifices [H2077] of mine offerings [H1890] , and eat [H398] [it; but] the LORD [H3068] accepteth [H7521] them not; now will he remember [H2142] their iniquity [H5771] , and visit [H6485] their sins [H2403] : they shall return [H7725] to Egypt [H4714] .(They sacrifice: or, In the sacrifices of mine offerings they, etc)
8:14 For Israel [H3478] hath forgotten [H7911] his Maker [H6213] , and buildeth [H1129] temples [H1964] ; and Judah [H3063] hath multiplied [H7235] fenced [H1219] cities [H5892] : but I will send [H7971] a fire [H784] upon his cities [H5892] , and it shall devour [H398] the palaces [H759] thereof.
