Hosea 8:12-14 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

12 I have written many things for them in my teachings,
    but they consider these things strange and foreign.
13 They offer sacrifices to me and eat the meat of sacrifices,
    but I, the Lord, do not accept these sacrifices.
        Now I will remember their wickedness
            and punish them because of their sins.
                They will go back to Egypt.
14 The people of Israel have built palaces,
    and they have forgotten their maker.
The people of Judah have built many fortified cities.
    I will send a fire on their cities and burn down their palaces.”

Hosea 8:12-14 New International Version (NIV)

12 I wrote for them the many things of my law,
    but they regarded them as something foreign.
13 Though they offer sacrifices as gifts to me,
    and though they eat the meat,
    the Lord is not pleased with them.
Now he will remember their wickedness
    and punish their sins:
    They will return to Egypt.
14 Israel has forgotten their Maker
    and built palaces;
    Judah has fortified many towns.
But I will send fire on their cities
    that will consume their fortresses.”
