Hosea 13:4 - 13:8

Yet I have been Yahweh your God
Since the land of Egypt;
And you were not to know any god except Me,
And there is no savior besides Me.
I Myself knew you in the wilderness,
In the land of drought.
As they had their pasture, then they became satisfied,
Indeed, they were satisfied, and their heart became raised up;
Therefore they forgot Me.
So I will be like a lion to them;
Like a leopard I will lie in wait by the wayside.
I will encounter them like a bear robbed of her cubs,
And I will tear open the chest enclosing their heart;
There I will also devour them like a lioness,
As a beast of the field would rip them open.
