When EphraimH669 spokeH1696 trembling,H7578 he exaltedH5375 himselfH1931 in Israel;H3478 but when he offendedH816 in Baal,H1168 he died.H4191
And nowH6258 they sinH2398 more and more, and have madeH6213 them moltenH4541 images of their silver,H3701 and idolsH6091 according to their own understanding,H8394 allH3605 of it the workH4639 of the craftsmen:H2796 they sayH559 of them, Let the menH120 that sacrificeH2076 kissH5401 the calves.H5697
ThereforeH3651 they shall be as the morningH1242 cloud H6051and as the earlyH7925 dewH2919 that passesH1980 away, as the chaffH4671 that is drivenH5590 with the whirlwindH5590 out of the floor,H1637 and as the smokeH6227 out of the chimney.H699
Yet I am the LORDH3068 your GodH430 from the landH776 of Egypt,H4714 and you shall knowH3045 noH3808 godH430 but me: for there is noH369 saviorH3467 besideH1115 me.
I did knowH3045 you in the wilderness,H4057 in the landH776 of greatH8514 drought.H8514
According to their pasture,H4830 so were they filled;H7646 they were filled,H7646 and their heartH3820 was exalted;H7311 thereforeH5921 H3651 have they forgottenH7911 me.
Therefore I will be to them as a lion:H7826 as a leopardH5246 by the wayH1870 will I observeH7789 them:
I will meetH6298 them as a bearH1677 that is bereavedH7909 of her whelps, and will rendH7167 the lobeH5458 of their heart,H3820 and thereH8033 will I devourH398 them like a lion:H3833 the wildH7704 beastH2416 shall tearH1234 them.
O Israel,H3478 you have destroyedH7843 yourself; but in me is your help.H5828
I willH165 be your king:H4428 whereH645 is any other that may saveH3467 you in allH3605 your cities?H5892 and your judgesH8199 of whomH834 you said,H559 GiveH5414 me a kingH4428 and princes?H8269
I gaveH5414 you a kingH4428 in my anger,H639 and tookH3947 him away in my wrath.H5678
The iniquityH5771 of EphraimH669 is boundH6887 up; his sinH2403 is hid.H6845
The sorrowsH2256 of a travailingH3205 woman shall comeH935 on him: he is an unwiseH3808 H2450 son;H1121 for he should not stayH5975 long in the place of the breakingH4866 forthH4866 of children.H1121
I will ransomH6299 them from the powerH3027 of the grave;H7585 I will redeemH1350 them from death:H4194 O death,H4194 I willH165 be your plagues;H1698 O grave,H7585 I willH165 be your destruction:H6987 repentanceH5164 shall be hidH5641 from my eyes.H5869
ThoughH3588 he be fruitfulH6500 amongH996 his brothers,H251 an eastH6921 wind shall come,H935 the windH7307 of the LORDH3068 shall comeH5927 up from the wilderness,H4057 and his springH4726 shall become dry,H954 and his fountainH4599 shall be driedH2717 up: he shall spoilH8154 the treasureH214 of allH3605 pleasantH2532 vessels.H3627
SamariaH8111 shall becomeH816 desolate;H816 for she has rebelledH4784 against her God:H430 they shall fallH5307 by the sword:H2719 their infantsH5768 shall be dashedH7376 in pieces, and their women with childH2030 shall be rippedH1234 up.
