13 When Ephraim spake trembling, he aexalted himself in Israel;

But when he boffended cin Baal, he died.

And now they sin more and more,

And dhave made them molten images of their silver,

And idols according to their own understanding,

eAll of it the work of the craftsmen:

They say of them, Let ||the men that sacrifice fkiss the calves.

Therefore they shall be ffas the morning cloud,

ffAnd as the early dew that passeth away,

gAs the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the floor,

And has the smoke out of ithe chimney.

Yet klI am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt,

And thou shalt know no god but me:

For kmthere is no saviour nbeside me.

oI did know thee in the wilderness,

pIn the land of great drought.

qrAccording to their pasture, so were they filled;

qThey were filled, and their heart was exalted;

Therefore qrhave they forgotten me.

Therefore sI will be unto them as a lion:

As ta leopard by the way will I uobserve them:

I will meet them as va bear that is bereaved of her whelps,

And will rend the caul of their heart,

And there will I devour them like a lion:

The wild beast shall tear them.

O Israel, wthou hast destroyed thyself; but xin me is thine help.

10  ||I will be thy king: xwhere is any other that may save thee in all thy cities?

And thy judges of whom zthou saidst, Give me a king and princes?

11  aI gave thee a king in mine anger,

And btook him away in my wrath.

12  The iniquity of Ephraim is cbound up; his sin is hid.

13  dThe sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him:

He is an unwise son;

For he should not estay long in the place of fthe breaking forth of children.

14  I ghwill ransom them from ithe power of the grave;

hI will redeem them from death:

jO death, I will be thy plagues;

O grave, I will be thy kdestruction:

lRepentance shall be hid from mine eyes.

15  Though mhe be fruitful among his brethren,

nAn east wind shall come, othe wind of the Lord shall come up pfrom the wilderness,

And his qspring rshall become dry, and his sfountain shall be dried up:

He shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels.

16  ||ssSamaria tshall become desolate;

uFor she hath rebelled against her God:

They shall fall by the sword:

vwTheir infants shall be dashed in pieces,

And wxtheir women with child shall be ripped up.
