028:010:001
Israel is an empty vine,
he bringeth forth fruit unto himself:
according to the multitude of his fruit he hath increased the altars;
according to the goodness of his land they have made goodly images.


028:010:002
Their heart is divided;
now shall they be found faulty:
he shall break down their altars,
he shall spoil their images.


028:010:003
For now they shall say,
We have no king,
because we feared not the LORD;
what then should a king do to us?


028:010:004
They have spoken words,
swearing falsely in making a covenant:
thus judgment springeth up as hemlock in the furrows of the field.


028:010:005
The inhabitants of Samaria shall fear because of the calves of Bethaven:
for the people thereof shall mourn over it,
and the priests thereof that rejoiced on it,
for the glory thereof,
because it is departed from it.


028:010:006
It shall be also carried unto Assyria for a present to king Jareb:
Ephraim shall receive shame,
and Israel shall be ashamed of his own counsel.


028:010:007
As for Samaria,
her king is cut off as the foam upon the water.


028:010:008
The high places also of Aven,
the sin of Israel,
shall be destroyed:
the thorn and the thistle shall come up on their altars;
and they shall say to the mountains,
Cover us;
and to the hills,
Fall on us.


028:010:009
O Israel,
thou hast sinned from the days of Gibeah:
there they stood:
the battle in Gibeah against the children of iniquity did not overtake them.


028:010:010
It is in my desire that I should chastise them;
and the people shall be gathered against them,
when they shall bind themselves in their two furrows.


028:010:011
And Ephraim is as an heifer that is taught,
and loveth to tread out the corn;
but I passed over upon her fair neck:
I will make Ephraim to ride;
Judah shall plow,
and Jacob shall break his clods.


028:010:012
Sow to yourselves in righteousness,
reap in mercy;
break up your fallow ground:
for it is time to seek the LORD,
till he come and rain righteousness upon you.


028:010:013
Ye have plowed wickedness,
ye have reaped iniquity;
ye have eaten the fruit of lies:
because thou didst trust in thy way,
in the multitude of thy mighty men.


028:010:014
Therefore shall a tumult arise among thy people,
and all thy fortresses shall be spoiled,
as Shalman spoiled Betharbel in the day of battle:
the mother was dashed in pieces upon her children.


028:010:015
So shall Bethel do unto you because of your great wickedness:
in a morning shall the king of Israel utterly be cut off.
