▼ a rebuker: Heb. a correction3 I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me: for now, O Ephraim, thou committest whoredom, and Israel is defiled. 4 They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the Lord. ▼
▼ They will…: or, Their doings will not suffer them, ▼
