According to the multitude of his fruit bhe hath increased the altars;
3 For now they shall say, eWe have no king,
Because we feared not the Lord;
What then should a king do to us?
For the people thereof shall mourn over it,
And ||the priests thereof that rejoiced on it,
Ephraim shall receive shame,
And uthey shall say to the mountains, Cover us;
And to the hills, Fall on us.
9 O Israel, thou hast sinned vfrom the days of Gibeah: there they stood:
wThe battle in Gibeah against the children of iniquity did not overtake them.
10 xIt is in my desire that I should chastise them;
And ythe people shall be gathered against them,
||When they shall bind themselves in their two furrows.
I will make Ephraim to ride;
Judah shall plow,
And Jacob shall cbreak his clods.
12 dSow to yourselves in righteousness,
For it is time to seek the Lord,
Till he come and hrain righteousness upon you.
Ye have eaten the fruit of lies:
Because thou didst trust in thy way,
In the multitude of thy mighty men.
nThe mother was dashed in pieces upon her children.
In a morning pshall the king of Israel utterly be cut off.
