11 Ephraim is like a dove,
osilly and without sense,
9 For rthey have gone up to Assyria,
sa wild donkey wandering alone;
Ephraim has hired lovers.
12 Ephraim feeds on the wind
and pursues zthe east wind all day long;
they multiply yfalsehood and violence;
athey make a covenant with Assyria,
and boil is carried to Egypt.
