Hosea 4:1; Isaiah 5:13

The Lord Accuses Israel

kHear the word of the Lord, O children of Israel,

for lthe Lord has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land.

There is no faithfulness or steadfast love,

and mno knowledge of God in the land;

13  Therefore my people go into exile

lfor lack of knowledge;1

their mhonored men go hungry,2

and their multitude is parched with thirst.
