Psalm 78:67; Hosea 4:17; Hosea 5:3; Hosea 5:9; Hosea 6:4; Hosea 12:1

67  He rejected the tent of pJoseph;

he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim,


17  qEphraim is joined to idols;

rleave him alone.


bI know Ephraim,

and Israel is not hidden from me;

for now, O Ephraim, you have played the whore;

Israel is defiled.


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, gO hEphraim?

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.
