Hosea 7:3 - 7:7

With their evil they make the king glad,
And the princes with their deceptions.
They are all adulterers,
Like an oven heated by the baker
Who ceases to stir up the fire
From the kneading of the dough until it is leavened.
On the day of our king, the princes became sick with the heat of wine;
He stretched out his hand with scoffers,
For their hearts are like an oven
As they draw near in their plotting;
Their anger smolders all night;
In the morning it burns like a flaming fire.
All of them are hot like an oven,
And they devour their judges;
All their kings have fallen.
None of them calls on Me.
