When I would have healedH7495 Israel,H3478 then the iniquityH5771 of EphraimH669 was discovered,H1540 and the wickednessH7451 of Samaria:H8111 for they commitH6466 falsehood;H8267 and the thiefH1590 comesH935 in, and the troopH1416 of robbers spoilsH6584 without.H2351
And they considerH559 not in their heartsH3824 that I rememberH2142 allH3605 their wickedness:H7451 now their own doingsH4611 have besetH5437 them about;H5437 they are beforeH5048 my face.H6440
They make the kingH4428 gladH8056 with their wickedness,H7451 and the princesH8269 with their lies.H3585
They are allH3605 adulterers,H5003 as an ovenH8574 heatedH1197 by the baker,H644 who ceasesH7673 from raisingH5782 after he has kneadedH3888 the dough,H1217 untilH5704 it be leavened.H2557
In the dayH3117 of our kingH4428 the princesH8269 have made him sickH2470 with bottlesH2573 of wine;H3196 he stretchedH4900 out his handH3027 with scorners.H3945
For they have made readyH7126 their heartH3820 like an oven,H8574 whiles they lie in wait:H693 their bakerH644 sleepsH3463 allH3605 the night;H3915 in the morningH1242 it burnsH1197 as a flamingH3852 fire.H784
They are allH3605 hotH2552 as an oven,H8574 and have devouredH398 their judges;H8199 allH3605 their kingsH4428 are fallen:H5307 there is noneH369 among them that callsH7121 to me.
Ephraim,H669 he has mixedH1101 himselfH1931 among the people;H5971 EphraimH669 is a cakeH5692 not turned.H2015
StrangersH2114 have devouredH398 his strength,H3581 and he knowsH3045 it not: yes,H1571 grayH7872 hairs are hereH2236 and there on him, yet he knowsH3045 not.
And the prideH1347 of IsraelH3478 testifiesH6030 to his face:H6440 and they do not returnH7725 to the LORDH3068 their God,H430 norH3808 seekH1245 him for allH3605 this.H2063
EphraimH669 also is like a sillyH6601 doveH3123 withoutH369 heart:H3820 they callH7121 to Egypt,H4714 they goH1980 to Assyria.H804
WhenH834 they shall go,H3212 I will spreadH6566 my netH7568 on them; I will bringH3381 them downH3381 as the fowlsH5775 of the heaven;H8064 I will chastiseH3256 them, as their congregationH5712 has heard.H8085
WoeH188 to them! for they have fledH5074 from me: destructionH7701 to them! becauseH3588 they have transgressedH6586 against me: though I have redeemedH6299 them, yet they have spokenH1696 liesH3576 againstH5921 me.
And they have not criedH2199 to me with their heart,H3820 whenH3588 they howledH3213 on their beds:H4904 they assembleH1481 themselves for cornH1715 and wine,H8492 and they rebelH5493 against me.
Though I have boundH3256 and strengthenedH2388 their arms,H2220 yet do they imagineH2803 mischiefH7451 againstH413 me.
They return,H7725 but not to the mostH5920 High:H5920 they are like a deceitfulH7423 bow:H7198 their princesH8269 shall fallH5307 by the swordH2719 for the rageH2195 of their tongue:H3956 thisH2097 shall be their derisionH3932 in the landH776 of Egypt.H4714
