The Case against Ephraim and Judah1 But Ephraim is an evil spirit. He pursued the burning wind the entire day. [2empty 3and 4vain things 1He multiplied]. And [2a covenant 3with 4the Assyrians 1he ordained], and [2olive oil 3in 4Egypt 1traded]. 2 And there is a case with the lord against Judah, to punish Jacob; according to his ways and according to his practices he will recompense to him. 3 In the belly he caught the heel of his brother; and in his toils he grew in strength with God. 4 And he grew in strength with the angel, and he prevailed; they wept and beseeched me; in the house of On they found me. There it was spoken to them. 5 But the lord God almighty will be his memorial. 6 And you [2to 3your God 1shall return]; [2mercy 3and 4judgment 1guard], and approach to your God always! 7 Canaan, in his hand is a yoke of iniquity; [2to tyrannize 1he loved]. 8 And Ephraim said, But I am rich, I have found respite for myself. All produce of his toils shall not be found in him, because of iniquities in which he sinned. 9 But I, the lord your God, led you out of the land of Egypt; still I will settle you in tents as in the days of the holiday feast. 10 And I will speak by prophets, and I [2visions 1multiplied], and by the hands of prophets I was likened. 11 If [3not 1Gilgal 2is], then even [6false 5were 3in 4Gilgal 1rulers 2sacrificing], and their altars are as tortoise like heaps upon an uncultivated field. 12 And Jacob withdrew into the plain of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and for a wife he guarded sheep. 13 And by a prophet the lord led Israel from out of the land of Egypt, and by a prophet he was guarded. 14 Ephraim was enraged and provoked to anger, therefore his blood [2upon 3him 1shall be poured out], and [5scorning 4his 2shall recompense 1the lord 3to him].
