The failure of the priests (Hos 4:4-4:5)

“Yet let no one contend!

Let none accuse!

My contention is

With you!

O priest!

You shall stumble

By day!”

Yahweh, via Hosea, was upset about the Israelite priests. No one should reprimand him, because he was complaining against the local priests. He hoped that they would stumble during the daytime.
