Hos 7:10 The pride of Israel testifies to his face; yet they do not return to the Lord their God, nor seek him, for all this.
This verse echoes Hos 5:5. In both places pride testifies against Israel. Humility and love are the highest commands. Pride flies in the face of both. Just as Eve’s pride betrayed her so Israel’s pride betrayed them. The Lord is faithful to forgive and have mercy, but He desires our love and our humility toward him. When we live in open rebellion we have no grounds to hope for that mercy. When we refuse to seek Him, we should not expect to find Him.
