Ephraim Reminded1 ▼
▼ Ch 12:2 in HebEphraim feeds on b wind,
And pursues the c east wind continually;
He multiplies lies and violence.
▼ Lit they makehe makes a covenant with Assyria,
And oil is carried to Egypt.
2The Lord also has a e dispute with Judah,
And will punish Jacob f according to his ways;
He will repay him according to his deeds.
3In the womb he g took his brother by the heel,
And in his maturity he h contended with God.
4Yes, he wrestled with the angel and prevailed;
He wept and i sought His favor.
He found Him at j Bethel
And there He spoke with us,
5Even the Lord, the God of hosts,
The Lord is His ▼
▼ Lit memorial, l name.
6Therefore, m return to your God,
n Observe ▼
▼ Or loyaltykindness and justice,
And p wait for your God continually.
▼ Or Canaanitemerchant, in whose hands are false r balances,
He loves to oppress.
8And Ephraim said, “Surely I have become s rich,
I have found wealth for myself;
In all my labors they will find in me
t No iniquity, which would be sin.”
9But I have been the Lord your God since the land of Egypt;
I will make you u live in tents again,
As in the days of the appointed festival.
10I have also spoken to the v prophets,
And I ▼
▼ Lit multiplied the visiongave numerous visions,
And through the prophets I gave x parables.
11Is there iniquity in Gilead?
Surely they are worthless.
In Gilgal they sacrifice bulls,
Yes y their altars are like the stone heaps
Beside the furrows of the field.
12Now z Jacob fled to the ▼
▼ Lit fieldland of Aram,
And ab Israel worked for a wife,
And for a wife he kept sheep.
13But by a ac prophet the Lord brought Israel from Egypt,
And by a prophet he was kept.
14 ad Ephraim has provoked to bitter anger;
So his Lord will leave his ae bloodguilt on him
And bring back his af reproach to him.
