The People's Apostasy Rebuked

1 Hear this, O priests ! Give heed, O house of Israel ! Listen, O house of the king ! For the judgment applies to you, For you have been a snare at Mizpah And a net spread out on Tabor. 11 Ephraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment, Because he was determined to follow man's command. 5 Therefore I have hewn them in pieces by the prophets ; I have slain them by the words of My mouth ; And the judgments on you are like the light that goes forth. 4 They speak mere words, With worthless oaths they make covenants ; And judgment sprouts like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field. 6 Therefore, return to your God, Observe kindness and justice, And wait for your God continually.
