Falsehood of Ephraim and Samaria1 In my healing Israel, then [4was uncovered 1the 2injustice 3of Ephraim], and the evil of Samaria. For they worked falsehoods; and a thief [2to 3him 1entered], [2stripping him 1and a robber] in his way; 2 so that they be together in concert as men singing in their heart that [2all 3their evils 1I remember]. Now [2encircled 3them 1their deliberations]; [2before 3my face 1they took place]. 3 In their evils they gladdened a king, and in their lies rulers. 4 All committing adultery are as an oven burning for baking; burning from the flame, from mixing together of the fat until its being leavened wholly. 5 In the days of our kings [3began 1the 2rulers] to be enraged from wine; he stretched out his hands with pestilent ones. 6 For [2were kindled 3as 4an oven 1their hearts] in their breaking down all the night; [3of sleep 1Ephraim 2was filled]; in the morning it was kindled as [2of a fire 1a flame]. 7 They were all heated as an oven, and they devoured their judges; all their kings are fallen; there was not one among them calling to me.
Ephraim Forsakes God8 Ephraim [2in 3his peoples 1is intermixed]; Ephraim became a cake baked in hot ashes not being turned over. 9 And [2ate 1strangers] his strength, but he did not know it; and gray hairs broke out to him, and he did not know it. 10 And [4shall be humbled 1the 2insolence 3of Israel] unto his face; but they turned not towards the lord their God; and they sought not after him in all these things. 11 And Ephraim was as [2dove 1a mindless], not having a heart; Egypt he called upon, and unto Assyria they went. 12 As whenever they shall go I will put over them my net; as the birds of heaven, I will lead them down; I will correct them in the hearing of their affliction. 13 Woe to them, for they leaped back from me. Wretched are they, for they were impious against me. But I ransomed them; but they spoke ill against me with lies, 14 and yelled out not to me with their hearts, but only shrieked in their beds; for grain and wine they mutilated themselves. 15 They were corrected by me; I strengthened their arms; and against me they devised wicked things. 16 They returned unto nothing; they became as a bow being stretched tight; [2shall fall 3by 4the broadsword 1their rulers] because of the stupidity of their tongue; this is their disparagement in the land of Egypt.
