HearH8085 you this,H2063 O priests;H3548 and listen,H7181 you houseH1004 of Israel;H3478 and give you ear,H238 O houseH1004 of the king;H4428 for judgmentH4941 is toward you, becauseH3588 you have beenH1961 a snareH6341 on Mizpah,H4709 and a netH7568 spreadH6566 on Tabor.H8396
And the rebelsH7846 are profoundH6009 to make slaughter,H7819 though I have been a rebukerH4148 of them all.H3605
I knowH3045 Ephraim,H669 and IsraelH3478 is not hidH3582 from me: for now, O Ephraim,H669 you commitH2181 prostitution,H2181 and IsraelH3478 is defiled.H2930
They will not frameH5414 their doingsH4611 to turnH7725 to their God:H430 for the spiritH7307 of prostitutionsH2183 is in the middleH7130 of them, and they have not knownH3045 the LORD.H3068
And the prideH1347 of IsraelH3478 does testifyH6030 to his face:H6440 therefore shall IsraelH3478 and EphraimH669 fallH3782 in their iniquity:H5771 JudahH3063 alsoH1571 shall fallH3782 with them.
They shall goH3212 with their flocksH6629 and with their herdsH1241 to seekH1245 the LORD;H3068 but they shall not findH4672 him; he has withdrawnH2502 himself from them.
They have dealt treacherouslyH898 against the LORD:H3068 for they have begottenH3205 strangeH2114 children:H1121 nowH6258 shall a monthH2320 devourH398 them with their portions.H2506
BlowH8628 you the cornetH7782 in Gibeah,H1390 and the trumpetH2689 in Ramah:H7414 cryH7321 aloudH7321 at Bethaven,H1007 afterH310 you, O Benjamin.H1144
EphraimH669 shall be desolateH8047 in the dayH3117 of rebuke:H8433 among the tribesH7626 of IsraelH3478 have I made knownH3045 that which shall surelyH539 be.
The princesH8269 of JudahH3063 were like them that removeH5253 the bound:H1366 therefore I will pourH8210 out my wrathH5678 on them like water.H4325
EphraimH669 is oppressedH6231 and brokenH7533 in judgment,H4941 becauseH3588 he willinglyH2974 walkedH1980 afterH310 the commandment.H6673
Therefore will I be to EphraimH669 as a moth,H6211 and to the houseH1004 of JudahH3063 as rottenness.H7538
When EphraimH669 sawH7200 his sickness,H2483 and JudahH3063 saw his wound,H4205 then wentH3212 EphraimH669 to the Assyrian,H804 and sentH7971 to kingH4428 Jareb:H3377 yet couldH3201 he not healH7495 you, norH3808 cureH1455 you of your wound.H4205
For I will be to EphraimH669 as a lion,H7826 and as a youngH3715 lionH3715 to the houseH1004 of Judah:H3063 I, even I, will tearH2963 and goH3212 away; I will takeH5375 away, and noneH369 shall rescueH5337 him.
I will goH3212 and returnH7725 to my place,H4725 tillH5704 they acknowledge their offense,H816 and seekH1245 my face:H6440 in their afflictionH6862 they will seekH7836 me early.H7836
