New International Version
8 The high places(A) of wickedness[a](B) will be destroyed—
it is the sin of Israel.
Thorns(C) and thistles will grow up
and cover their altars.(D)
Then they will say to the mountains, “Cover us!”(E)
and to the hills, “Fall on us!”(F)
- Hosea 10:8 Hebrew aven, a reference to Beth Aven (a derogatory name for Bethel); see verse 5.
