HOSEA 77:1 when I would heal Israel,the iniquity of Ephraim is revealed,and the evil deeds of Samaria,for they deal falsely;the thief breaks in,and the bandits raid outside. 2 But they do not considerthat I remember all their evil.Now their deeds surround them;they are before my face. 3 By their evil they make the king glad,and the princes by their treachery. 4 They are all adulterers;they are like a heated ovenwhose baker ceases to stir the fire,from the kneading of the doughuntil it is leavened. 5 On the day of our king, the princesbecame sick with the heat of wine;he stretched out his hand with mockers. 6 For with hearts like an oven they approach their intrigue;all night their anger smolders;in the morning it blazes like a flaming fire. 7 All of them are hot as an oven,and they devour their rulers.All their kings have fallen,and none of them calls upon me.
