Bible: Hosea 13:4-7

Well-Fed Israel Will Be Fed to Wild Animals

13:4 But I am the Lord your God,

who brought you out of Egypt.

Therefore, you must not acknowledge any God but me;

except me there is no Savior.

13:5 I cared 1  for you in the wilderness,

in the dry desert where no water was. 2 

13:6 When they were fed, 3  they became satisfied;

when they were satisfied, they became proud; 4 

as a result, they forgot me!

13:7 So 5  I will pounce on them like a lion; 6 

like a leopard I will lurk by the path.
