HOS 3:4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a
king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an
image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:
HOS 3:5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the
LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his
goodness in the latter days.
HOS 4:1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD
hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no
truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
