Hosea 13:2
Good News Translation
They still keep on sinning by making metal images to worship--idols of silver, designed by human minds, made by human hands. And then they say, "Offer sacrifices to them!" How can anyone kiss those idols--idols in the shape of bulls!

Contemporary English Version
Now you continue to sin by designing and making idols of silver in the shape of calves. You are told to sacrifice to these idols--yes, even to kiss them.

Douay-Rheims Bible
