9 aRejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as other people:
For bthou hast gone a whoring from thy God,
3 They shall not dwell in fthe Lord’s land;
But gEphraim shall return to Egypt,
4 kThey shall not offer wine offerings to the Lord,
lNeither shall they be pleasing unto him:
Their sacrifices shall be unto them as mthe bread of mourners;
nAll that eat thereof shall be polluted:
For their bread for their soul shall not come into the house of the Lord.
5 What will ye do in othe solemn day,
And in the day of othe feast of the Lord?
6 For, lo, they are gone because of †destruction:
qThorns shall be in their tabernacles.
7 rThe days of visitation are come,
The days of srecompence are come;
sIsrael shall know it:
For the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred.
8 vThe watchman of Ephraim was with my God:
And hatred ||in the house of his God.
And htheir abominations were according as they loved.
11 As for Ephraim, itheir glory shall fly away like a bird,
jFrom the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception.
12 kThough they bring up their children,
Yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left:
13 Ephraim, as I saw nTyrus, is planted in a pleasant place:
But Ephraim kshall bring forth his children to the murderer.
15 All their wickedness is pin Gilgal: for there I hated them:
For the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house,
I will love them no more:
And tthey shall be wanderers among the nations.
