lack of knowledge

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you [the priestly nation] have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you that you shall be no priest to Me; seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.  - Hosea 4:6

I read this verse the other day and it struck me!  My goodness...we really misquote this verse!!  I hear it all the time...."my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge"...  OFTEN. goes on to say why... BECAUSE you have rejected knowledge.  Could rejecting knowledge be the same as getting tons of Word in our memory...hearing and hearting... and NEVER actually doing what we hear??  I wonder....
