Trivia: In chapter 9, what did Hosea ask God to the tribe of Ephraim?

Hosea : Intolerance (4)

  1. It's not clear in the KJV, but "people" and "strangers" are translated as "aliens" and "foreigners" in other versions. This would mean part of the reason for Ephraim's bloody fate is association with other races. 7:8-9
  2. "Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them!" 7:13
  3. "They return, but not to the most High ... their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue." 7:16
  4. Because the Samaritans chose to worship another deity, God will dash their infants to pieces and their "women with child shall be ripped up."Â 13:16
