26 Do you think that you can reprove words,
when the speech of a despairing man is owind?
2 “How long will you say these things,
and the words of your mouth be a dgreat wind?
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.
