1 H3478 Israel H1238 [H8802] is an empty H1612 vine H7737 [H8762] , he bringeth forth H6529 fruit H7230 to himself: according to the multitude H6529 of his fruit H7235 [H8689] he hath multiplied H4196 the altars H2896 ; according to the goodness H776 of his land H2895 [H8689] they have made beautiful H4676 images.
2 H3820 Their heart H2505 [H8804] is divided H816 [H8799] ; now shall they be found faulty H6202 [H8799] : he shall break down H4196 their altars H7703 [H8779] , he shall spoil H4676 their images.
3 H559 [H8799] For now they shall say H4428 , We have no king H3372 [H8804] , because we feared H3068 not the LORD H4428 ; what then should a king H6213 [H8799] do to us?
4 H1696 [H8765] They have spoken H1697 words H422 [H8800] , swearing H7723 falsely H3772 [H8800] in making H1285 a covenant H4941 : thus judgment H6524 [H8804] springeth up H7219 as hemlock H8525 in the furrows H7704 of the field.
5 H7934 The inhabitants H8111 of Samaria H1481 [H8799] shall fear H5697 because of the calves H1007 of Bethaven H5971 : for its people H56 [H8804] shall mourn H3649 over it, and its priests H1523 [H8799] that rejoiced H3519 on it, for its glory H1540 [H8804] , because it is departed from it.
6 H2986 [H8714] It shall also be carried H804 to Assyria H4503 for a present H4428 to king H3377 Jareb H669 : Ephraim H3947 [H8799] shall receive H1317 shame H3478 , and Israel H954 [H8799] shall be ashamed H6098 of his own counsel.
7 H8111 As for Samaria H4428 , her king H1820 [H8738] is cut off H7110 as the foam H6440 upon H4325 the water.
8 H1116 The high places H206 also of Aven H2403 , the sin H3478 of Israel H8045 [H8738] , shall be destroyed H6975 : the thorn H1863 and the thistle H5927 [H8799] shall come up H4196 on their altars H559 [H8804] ; and they shall say H2022 to the mountains H3680 [H8761] , Cover H1389 us; and to the hills H5307 [H8798] , Fall on us.
9 H3478 O Israel H2398 [H8804] , thou hast sinned H3117 from the days H1390 of Gibeah H5975 [H8804] : there they stood H4421 : the battle H1390 in Gibeah H1121 against the children H5932 of iniquity H5381 [H8686] did not overtake them.
10 H185 It is in my desire H3256 [H8799] that I should chastise H5971 them; and the people H622 [H8795] shall be gathered H631 [H8800] against them, when they shall bind H8147 themselves in their two H5869 furrows.
11 H669 And Ephraim H5697 is as an heifer H3925 [H8794] that is taught H157 [H8802] , and loveth H1758 [H8800] to tread out H5674 [H8804] the grain; but I passed over H2898 upon her fair H6677 neck H669 : I will make Ephraim H7392 [H8686] to ride H3063 ; Judah H2790 [H8799] shall plow H3290 , and Jacob H7702 [H8762] shall break his clods.
12 H2232 [H8798] Sow H6666 to yourselves in righteousness H7114 [H8798] , reap H6310 in H2617 mercy H5214 [H8798] ; break up H5215 your fallow ground H6256 : for it is time H1875 [H8800] to seek H3068 the LORD H935 [H8799] , till he shall come H3384 [H8686] and rain H6664 righteousness upon you.
13 H2790 [H8804] Ye have plowed H7562 wickedness H7114 [H8804] , ye have reaped H5766 iniquity H398 [H8804] ; ye have eaten H6529 the fruit H3585 of lies H982 [H8804] : because thou hast trusted H1870 in thy way H7230 , in the multitude H1368 of thy mighty men.
14 H7588 Therefore shall a tumult H6965 [H8804] arise H5971 among thy people H4013 , and all thy fortresses H7703 [H8714] shall be plundered H8020 , as Shalman H7701 plundered H1009 Betharbel H3117 in the day H4421 of battle H517 : the mother H7376 [H8795] was dashed in pieces H1121 upon her children.
