Hosea 8:6-8 Modern English Version (MEV)

    For it is from Israel;
a craftsman made it,
    and it is not God!
The calf of Samaria
    will be broken to pieces.

For they sow the wind,
    and they will reap the whirlwind.
The standing grain has no head
    and will yield no flour.
If it were to yield,
    foreigners would swallow it up.
Israel is swallowed up.
    Now they are among the nations
    as a vessel in which there is no pleasure.

Hosea 8:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

    They are from Israel!
This calf—a metalworker has made it;
    it is not God.
It will be broken in pieces,
    that calf of Samaria.

“They sow the wind
    and reap the whirlwind.
The stalk has no head;
    it will produce no flour.
Were it to yield grain,
    foreigners would swallow it up.
Israel is swallowed up;
    now she is among the nations
    like something no one wants.
