Hosea 9:11-14

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 9

11 As for Ephraim, their glory will fly away like a bird— No birth, no pregnancy, and no conception! 12 Though they bring up their children, Yet I will bereave them of their children until not a person is left. Yes, woe to them indeed when I depart from them! 13 Ephraim, as I have seen, Is planted in a pasture like Tyre; But Ephraim is going to bring out his children for slaughter. 14 Give to them, LORD—what will You give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dried-up breasts.
King James Version

Chapter 9

11 As for Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception. 12 Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them! 13 Ephraim, as I saw Tyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer. 14 Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 9

11 Ephraim's glory will fly away like a bird: no birth, no pregnancy, no conception. 12 Even if they raise children, I will bereave them of each one. Yes, woe to them when I depart from them! 13 I have seen Ephraim like Tyre, planted in a meadow, so Ephraim will bring out his children to the executioner.
14 Give them, Lord -- What should you give? Give them a womb that miscarries and breasts that are dry!
New Living Translation

Chapter 9

11 The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird, for your children will not be born or grow in the womb or even be conceived. 12 Even if you do have children who grow up, I will take them from you. It will be a terrible day when I turn away and leave you alone. 13 I have watched Israel become as beautiful as Tyre. But now Israel will bring out her children for slaughter.'
14 O LORD, what should I request for your people? I will ask for wombs that don't give birth and breasts that give no milk.
English Standard Version

Woe to them when I depart from them! 13 Ephraim, as I have seen, was like a young palm planted in a meadow; but Ephraim must lead his children out to slaughter. 14 Give them, O LORD— what will you give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.
