2 As ethey called them, so they went from them:
3 gI taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms;
But they knew not that hI healed them.
And mI laid meat unto them.
5 nHe shall not return into the land of Egypt,
But othe Assyrian shall be his king,
pBecause they refused to return.
And shall consume his rbranches, and devour them,
sBecause of their own counsels.
7 And my people are bent tto backsliding from me:
8 wHow shall I give thee up, Ephraim?
How shall I deliver thee, Israel?
How shall I set thee as yZeboim?
Mine heart is turned zwithin me,
I will not return to destroy Ephraim:
cFor I am God, and not man;
And I will not enter into the city.
When he shall roar, then the children shall tremble hfrom the west.
11 They shall tremble as a bird iout of Egypt,
And lI will place them in their houses, saith the Lord.
