Morning Scripture Reading - Hosea 10:1-4

Hosea 10:1-4 English Standard Version

1 Israel is a luxuriant vine

    that yields its fruit.

The more his fruit increased,

    the more altars he built;

as his country improved,

    he improved his pillars.

2 Their heart is false;

    now they must bear their guilt.

The Lord will break down their altars

    and destroy their pillars.

3 For now they will say:

    “We have no king,

for we do not fear the Lord;

    and a king—what could he do for us?”

4 They utter mere words;

    with empty oaths they make covenants;

so judgment springs up like poisonous weeds

    in the furrows of the field.
