Deuteronomy 28:41; Hosea 9:13; Hosea 9:16

41 You shall father sons and daughters, but they shall not be yours, for sthey shall go into captivity.

13  Ephraim, has I have seen, was like a young palm1 planted in a meadow;

but eEphraim must lead his children out to slaughter.2

16  Ephraim is stricken;

mtheir root is dried up;

they shall bear no fruit.

Even nthough they give birth,

eI will put their beloved children to death.
