IsraelH3478 is an emptyH1238 vine,H1612 he bringsH7737 forthH7737 fruitH6529 to himself: according to the multitudeH7230 of his fruitH6529 he has increasedH7235 the altars;H4196 according to the goodnessH2896 of his landH776 they have made goodlyH2896 images.H4676
Their heartH3820 is divided;H2505 nowH6258 shall they be found faulty:H816 he shall breakH6202 down their altars,H4196 he shall spoilH7703 their images.H4676
For nowH6258 they shall say,H559 We have noH369 king,H4428 becauseH3588 we fearedH3372 not the LORD;H3068 whatH4100 then should a kingH4428 doH6213 to us?
They have spokenH1696 words,H1697 swearingH422 falselyH7723 in makingH3772 a covenant:H1285 thus judgmentH4941 springsH6524 up as hemlockH7219 in the furrowsH8525 of the field.H7704
The inhabitantsH7934 of SamariaH8111 shall fearH1481 because of the calvesH5697 of Bethaven:H1007 for the peopleH5971 thereof shall mournH56 overH5921 it, and the priestsH3649 thereof that rejoicedH1523 onH5921 it, for the gloryH3519 thereof, becauseH3588 it is departedH1540 from it.
It shall be alsoH1571 carriedH2986 to AssyriaH804 for a presentH4503 to kingH4428 Jareb:H3377 EphraimH669 shall receiveH3947 shame,H1317 and IsraelH3478 shall be ashamedH954 of his own counsel.H6098
As for Samaria,H8111 her kingH4428 is cutH1820 off as the foamH7110 on the water.H4325
The highH1116 places also of Aven,H206 the sinH2403 of Israel,H3478 shall be destroyed:H8045 the thornH6975 and the thistleH1863 shall comeH5927 up onH5921 their altars;H4196 and they shall sayH559 to the mountains,H2022 CoverH3680 us; and to the hills,H1389 FallH5307 onH5921 us.
O Israel,H3478 you have sinnedH2398 from the daysH3117 of Gibeah:H1390 thereH8033 they stood:H5975 the battleH4421 in GibeahH1390 againstH5921 the childrenH1121 of iniquityH5932 did not overtakeH5381 them.
It is in my desireH183 that I should chastiseH3256 them; and the peopleH5971 shall be gatheredH622 againstH5921 them, when they shall bindH631 themselves in their twoH8147 furrows.H5869
And EphraimH669 is as an heiferH5697 that is taught,H3925 and lovesH157 to treadH1758 out the corn; but I passedH5674 overH5674 on her fairH2898 neck:H6676 I will make EphraimH669 to ride;H7392 JudahH3063 shall plow,H2790 and JacobH3290 shall breakH7702 his clods.H7702
SowH2232 to yourselves in righteousness,H6666 reapH7114 in mercy;H2617 breakH5214 up your fallowH5215 ground: for it is timeH6256 to seekH1875 the LORD,H3068 tillH5704 he comeH935 and rainH3384 righteousnessH6664 on you.
You have plowedH2790 wickedness,H7562 you have reapedH7114 iniquity;H5766 you have eatenH398 the fruitH6529 of lies:H3585 becauseH3588 you did trustH982 in your way,H1870 in the multitudeH7230 of your mightyH1368 men.
Therefore shall a tumultH7588 ariseH6965 among your people,H5971 and allH3605 your fortressesH4013 shall be spoiled,H7703 as ShalmanH8020 spoiledH7701 BetharbelH1009 in the dayH3117 of battle:H4421 the motherH517 was dashedH7376 in pieces on her children.H1121
SoH3602 shall BethelH1008 doH6213 to you becauseH6440 of your greatH7451 wickedness:H7451 in a morningH7837 shall the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 utterly be cutH1820 off.
