He shall come bas an eagle against the house of the Lord,
Because cthey have transgressed my covenant,
And trespassed against my law.
2 Israel shall cry unto me, dMy God, we know thee.
3 Israel jhath cast off the thing that is good:
The enemy shall pursue him.
They have made princes, and I knew it not:
Of gtheir silver and their gold have they made them idols,
That they may be cut off.
Mine anger is kindled against them:
The workman made it; therefore it is not God:
It hath no ||stalk: the bud shall yield no meal:
If so be it yield, nthe strangers shall swallow it up.
8 oIsrael is swallowed up:
Now shall they be among the Gentiles as pa vessel wherein is no pleasure.
11 Because Ephraim vhath made many altars to sin,
Altars shall be unto him to sin.
But they were counted as a strange thing.
But zthe Lord accepteth them not;
cThey shall return to Egypt.
And Judah hath multiplied fenced cities:
But gI will send a fire upon his cities,
And git shall devour the palaces thereof.
