Hosea 8:6-8 New Life Version (NLV)

in Israel? A workman made this calf, so it is not God. The calf of Samaria will be broken to pieces. They plant the wind and they will gather the storm. The standing grain has no heads, and will give no food. If it were to give food, strangers would eat it.

“Israel is eaten up. They are now among the nations like a pot that is of no worth.

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.
