Ephraim has become a cake not turned.
9 aStrangers devour his strength,
Yet he bdoes not know it;
Gray hairs also are sprinkled on him,
Yet he does not know it.
10 Though the apride of Israel testifies against him,
Yet bthey have not returned to the Lord their God,
Nor have they sought Him, for all this.
12 When they go, I will aspread My net over them;
I will bring them down like the birds of the sky.
