Reaping the Whirlwind - v1 by Raymond A. Foss
They were reaping the breach, the wrong they did their God
The breach the worship, the communion with other Gods, with Baal
in the land they were given, the land Abraham was promised,
where Moses had lead, where those kings, those leaders
anointed by God, were nurtured, a people separate from the land
from the gods of the conquered, the local gods,
They were the people, the chosen people of God
But, they grew forgetful, unfaithful, even the wise Solomon
they prospered through alliances, false prosperity
of human making, forgetting the covenant, the bond
they had in knowing God, how horrible the whirlwind they
reaped, in Israel, in Judah, for following local gods,
Gods of the Assyrians, allegiance to grain and wine
when they knew the God of all, creator of the world
How awesome the price they paid

"For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind."
Hosea 8:7
