Judgment against Israel and Ephraim1 Hear these things, O priests! And take heed, O house of Israel! And [2O house 3of the 4king 1give ear]! For [3against 4you 2is 1judgment]. For [2a snare 1you were] in the Height, and as a net being stretched out upon Tabor, 2 which the ones catching the game firmly fastened; but I am your corrector. 3 I knew Ephraim, and Israel is not removed from me. For now Ephraim fornicated; Israel was defiled. 4 They gave not their deliberations to turn towards their God. For a spirit of harlotry is in the midst of them, and the lord they knew not. 5 And [4shall be humbled 1the 2insolence 3of Israel] unto his face; and Israel and Ephraim shall weaken in their iniquities; and [3shall be weak 2also 1Judah] with them. 6 With sheep and calves they shall go to seek after the lord, and in no way should they find him; he has turned aside from them. 7 For [2the 3 lord 1they abandoned]; for [2children 1alien] were born to them. Now [3shall devour 4them 1the 2blight] and their lots of heritage.
Days of Reproof8 Trump the trumpet upon the hills! Sound out upon the high places! Proclaim in the house of On! Benjamin is startled. 9 Ephraim [2for 3extinction 1became] in the days of reproof. Among the tribes of Israel I showed to be trustworthy. 10 [4became 1The 2rulers 3of Judah] as ones altering boundaries. Upon them I will pour out [2as 3water 1my impulse]. 11 Ephraim tyrannized over his opponent; he trampled judgment, for he began to go after the vain things. 12 And I will be as a disturbance to Ephraim, and as a spur to the house of Judah. 13 And Ephraim beheld his disease, and Judah his grief. And Ephraim went to Assyria, and sent ambassadors to king Jareb; and he was not able to rescue; and in no way should there be a discontinuance of your grief. 14 For I am as a panther to Ephraim, and as a lion to the house of Judah. And I will seize by force, and I will go, and I will take, and there shall not be one rescuing. 15 I shall go and return unto my place until of which time they should be removed from view; and they shall seek my face.
