The response of Yahweh (Hos 12:9-12:10)

β€œI am Yahweh!

Your God!

I brought you

From the land of Egypt.

I will make you

Live in tents again,

As in the days

Of the appointed festivals.

I spoke to the prophets.

It was I

Who multiplied visions.

I will bring destruction

Through the prophets.”

Yahweh, via Hosea, responded that he was their God. He had brought them out of the land of Egypt. However, he was going to make them live in tents again, like they did on the festival of Tents. He had spoken to the prophets. He had provided their visions. He now could bring destruction to them via the same prophets.

The seventh month offerings (Ezek 45:25-45:25)

β€œIn the seventh month,

On the fifteenth day

Of the month,

For the seven days

Of the festival,

The prince shall make

The same provision

For sin offerings,

Burnt offerings,

Grain offerings,

As well as for the oil.”

The only other 7-day festival mentioned here is the festival of Tents that was on the 15th day in the 7th month of the year, 6 months after Passover. Once again, the prince was to provide the same provisions as at Passover. He had to provide all those animals and grains for the 7-day sin offerings, the burnt offerings, and the grain offerings, including the oil with the grain offerings.
