Deuteronomy 8:13

Hebrew Bible

11 Be sure you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping his commandments, ordinances, and statutes that I am giving you today. 12 When you eat your fill, when you build and occupy good houses, 13 when your cattle and flocks increase, when you have plenty of silver and gold, and when you have abundance of everything, 14 be sure you do not feel self-important and forget the Lord your God who brought you from the land of Egypt, the place of slavery,

Hosea 2:8

Hebrew Bible

8 “Yet until now she has refused to acknowledge that I was the one who gave her the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil; and that it was I who lavished on her the silver and gold—that they used in worshiping Baal! 9 Therefore, I will take back my grain during the harvest time and my new wine when it ripens; I will take away my wool and my flax that I had provided in order to clothe her. 10 Soon I will expose her lewd nakedness in front of her lovers, and no one will be able to rescue her from me! 11 I will put an end to all her celebrations: her annual religious festivals, monthly new moon celebrations, and weekly Sabbath festivities—all her appointed festivals.

 Notes and References

"... in answering the question about the direction of dependence, it is important to pay much attention to the contexts of both parts of the parallel. How do the shared phrases interact with their contexts? Are there signs of reinterpretation? In my own study of the verbal parallels in Hosea and Deuteronomy, these criteria have proved relevant, in particular Lyons’ first three criteria. For example, Hos 13:5–6 appears to be a quotation of textual elements taken from Deuteronomy 8:11–14, since Hos 13:5–6 contains Deuteronomic elements, modifies the Deuteronomic command and is dependent on information in Deuteronomy 8. Hosea 2:10 apparently quotes Deuteronomy 8:13, because a split-up pattern of a Deuteronomic stock phrase can be observed in Hos 2:10b ..."
