The days of punishment have come (Hos 9:7-9:7)

β€œThe days of punishment

Have come.

The days of recompense

Have come.

Israel cries.

β€˜The prophet is a fool!

The man of the spirit is mad!’

Because of your great iniquity,

Your hostility is great.”

Hosea declared that the day of punishment and compensation has come to Israel. Meanwhile, the Israelites cried out that the prophets were fools. They said that the spiritual men were mad. All of this great iniquity happened, because their hostility was so great.
