Chapter 5

1

 

  Hear this, ye priests; and hearken, ye house of Israel; and give ear, O house of the king: for this judgment is for you; for ye have been a snare at Mizpah, and a net spread upon Tabor.  

 

 


2

 

  And they have plunged themselves in the corruption of apostasy, but I will be a chastiser of them all.  

 

 


3

 

  I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me; for now, Ephraim, thou hast committed whoredom; Israel is defiled.  

 

 


4

 

  Their doings do not allow them to return unto their God; for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they know not Jehovah.  

 

 


5

 

  And Israel's pride doth testify to his face; and Israel and Ephraim shall fall by their iniquity: Judah also shall fall with them.  

 

 


6

 

  They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek Jehovah; but they shall not find [him]: he hath withdrawn himself from them.  

 

 


7

 

  They have dealt treacherously against Jehovah; for they have begotten strange children: now shall the new moon devour them, with their allotted possessions.  

 

 


8

 

  Blow the horn in Gibeah, the trumpet in Ramah; cry aloud [at] Beth-aven: behind thee, O Benjamin!  

 

 


9

 

  Ephraim shall be a desolation in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which is sure.  

 

 


10

 

  The princes of Judah are become like them that remove the landmark: I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.  

 

 


11

 

  Ephraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment, because in selfwill he walked after the commandment [of man].  

 

 


12

 

  And I will be unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.  

 

 


13

 

  When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah his sore, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb; but he was unable to heal you, nor hath he removed your sore.  

 

 


14

 

  For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah. I, I will tear and go away; I will carry off, and there shall be none to deliver.  

 

 


15

 

  I will go away, I will return to my place, till they acknowledge their trespass, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.
