18 I have surely heard zzEphraim bemoaning himself thus;
Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised,
As a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke:
xTurn thou me, and I shall be turned;
For thou art the Lord my God.
19 Surely yafter that I was turned, I repented;
And after that I was instructed, I zsmote upon my thigh:
I was ashamed, yea, even confounded,
Because I did bear the reproach aof my youth.
