For Leaders, On Your
Roles having When your leaders spoke, everyone in Israel trembled and showed great respect. But you sinned by worshiping Baal, and you were destroyed. Now you continue to sin by designing and making idols of silver in the shape of calves.
You are told to sacrifice to these idols yes, even to kiss them. And so, all of you will vanish like the mist or the dew of early morning, or husks of grain in the wind or smoke from a chimney. I, the Lord, have been your God since the time you were in Egypt. I am the only God you know, the only one who can save.
I took care of you in a thirsty desert. I fed you till you were satisfied, then you became proud and forgot about me. Now I will attack like a lion, ambush you like a leopard, and
rip you apart
like a bear robbed of her cubs.
I will gnaw on your bones, as though I were a lion or some other wild animal. Israel, you are done for. Dont expect help from me. You wanted a king and rulers. Where is your king now? What cities have rulers? In my anger, I gave you a king; in my fury, I took him away. Hosea 13:1-11
