The pride of Israel testifies to his face; yet they haven't returned to Yahweh their God, nor sought him, for all this.

Hosea 7:10 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face - His pride convicted him. All the afflictions of God humbled him not; yea, they but brought out his pride, which "kept him from acknowledging and repenting of the sins which had brought those evils upon him, and from "turning to God and seeking to Him" for remedy" . People complain of their "fortune" or "fate" or "stars," and go on the more obstinately, to build up what God destroys, to prop up by human means or human aid what, by God's providence, is failing; they venture more desperately, in order to recover past losses, until the crash at last becomes hopeless and final.
Nor seek Him for all this - God had exhausted all the treasures of His severity, as, before, of His love. He Himself marvels at His incorrigible and contumacious servant, as He says in Isaiah, "Why should ye be stricken anymore? Ye will revolt more and more" Isaiah 1:5. How is this? It follows, because they have "no heart."

Book vii. On the Useful or the Ordinary
Yet the people do not turn back to Him who struck them, Nor do they seek the LORD of hosts.
Moreover, the pride of Israel testifies against him, And Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity; Judah also has stumbled with them.
And those who have turned back from following the LORD, And those who have not sought the LORD or inquired of Him."
