028:007:001
When I would have healed Israel,
then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered,
and the wickedness of Samaria:
for they commit falsehood;
and the thief cometh in,
and the troop of robbers spoileth without.


028:007:002
And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness:
now their own doings have beset them about;
they are before my face.


028:007:003
They make the king glad with their wickedness,
and the princes with their lies.


028:007:004
They are all adulterers,
as an oven heated by the baker,
who ceaseth from raising after he hath kneaded the dough,
until it be leavened.


028:007:005
In the day of our king the princes have made him sick with bottles of wine;
he stretched out his hand with scorners.


028:007:006
For they have made ready their heart like an oven,
whiles they lie in wait:
their baker sleepeth all the night;
in the morning it burneth as a flaming fire.


028:007:007
They are all hot as an oven,
and have devoured their judges;
all their kings are fallen:
there is none among them that calleth unto me.


028:007:008
Ephraim,
he hath mixed himself among the people;
Ephraim is a cake not turned.


028:007:009
Strangers have devoured his strength,
and he knoweth it not:
yea,
gray hairs are here and there upon him,
yet he knoweth not.


028:007:010
And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face:
and they do not return to the LORD their God,
nor seek him for all this.


028:007:011
Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart:
they call to Egypt,
they go to Assyria.


028:007:012
When they shall go,
I will spread my net upon them;
I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven;
I will chastise them,
as their congregation hath heard.


028:007:013
Woe unto them!
for they have fled from me:
destruction unto them!
because they have transgressed against me:
though I have redeemed them,
yet they have spoken lies against me.


028:007:014
And they have not cried unto me with their heart,
when they howled upon their beds:
they assemble themselves for corn and wine,
and they rebel against me.


028:007:015
Though I have bound and strengthened their arms,
yet do they imagine mischief against me.


028:007:016
They return,
but not to the most High:
they are like a deceitful bow:
their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue:
this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.
