Hosea 4:6-8 Living Bible (TLB)
6 My people are destroyed because they don’t know me, and it is all your fault, you priests, for you yourselves refuse to know me; therefore, I refuse to recognize you as my priests. Since you have forgotten my laws, I will ‘forget’ to bless your children. 7 The more my people multiplied, the more they sinned against me. They exchanged the glory of God for the disgrace of idols.
8 “The priests rejoice in the sins of the people; they lap it up and lick their lips for more!
