Bible: Hos 9:6-7

No Escape for the Israelites This Time!

9:6 Look! 1  Even if 2  they flee from the destruction,

Egypt will take hold 3  of them,

and Memphis will bury them.

The weeds will inherit the silver they treasure 4 

thorn bushes will occupy their homes. 5 

9:7 The time of judgment 6  is about to arrive! 7 

The time of retribution 8  is imminent! 9 

Let Israel know! 10 

Israel Rejects Hosea’s Prophetic Exhortations

The prophet is considered a fool 11 

the inspired man 12  is viewed as a madman 13 

because of the multitude of your sins

and your intense 14  animosity.
