“Now they keep on sinning.
They make a cast image
They make idols
According to their understanding.
All of them are
The work of artisans.
‘Sacrifice to these!’
People are kissing calves!
They shall be
Like the morning mist,
Like the dew
That goes early away,
Like the chaff
From the threshing floor,
From a window.”
Yahweh, via Hosea, had this main complaint against the northern Israelites that they kept on adoring these idol Baal images. They kept on sinning. They made their own silver idols. They made their own images without any understanding, clearly the work of artisans. When they were finished, they wanted the people to sacrifice to these idols. They wanted people to kiss these idol calves. Yahweh was going to punish them. They were going to become like the morning mist that disappears during the day. They were going to be like chaff that blows in the wind from the threshing floor. They were going to be like smoke from a window. They would disappear before their very own eyes.
