Hosea 2:8 - 2:13

“Now she does not know that it was I who gave her the grain, the new wine, and the oil,
And multiplied silver and gold for her,
Which they used for Baal.
Therefore, I will take back My grain at harvest time
And My new wine in its season.
I will also deliver My wool and My flax from them
Given to cover her nakedness.
So now I will uncover her lewdness
In the sight of her lovers,
And no one will deliver her out of My hand.
I will also cease all her joy,
Her feasts, her new moons, her sabbaths,
And all her appointed times.
And I will make desolate her vines and fig trees,
Of which she said, ‘These are my wages
Which my lovers have given me.’
And I will make them a forest,
And the beasts of the field will devour them.
So I will visit the days of the Baals upon her
When she used to offer offerings in smoke to them
And adorn herself with her earrings and jewelry
And go after her lovers, so that she forgot Me,” declares Yahweh.
