67 He rejected the tent of pJoseph;
he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim,
17 qEphraim is joined to idols;
rleave him alone.
3 bI know Ephraim,
and Israel is not hidden from me;
for now, O Ephraim, you have played the whore;
Israel is defiled.
9 Ephraim shall become a desolation
in the day of punishment;
among the tribes of Israel
I make known what is sure.
What shall I do with you, O hJudah?
Your love is ilike a morning cloud,
ilike the dew that goes early away.
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.
