God's Controversy with Israel

1 Listen to the word of the LORD , O sons of Israel, For the LORD has a case against the inhabitants of the land, Because there is no faithfulness or kindness Or knowledge of God in the land. 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. 14 For I will be like a lion to Ephraim And like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear to pieces and go away, I will carry away, and there will be none to deliver. 7 All of them are hot like an oven, And they consume their rulers; All their kings have fallen. None of them calls on Me. 11 So Ephraim has become like a silly dove, without sense; They call to Egypt, they go to Assyria. 7 For they sow the wind And they reap the whirlwind. The standing grain has no heads; It yields no grain. Should it yield, strangers would swallow it up. 8 Israel is swallowed up; They are now among the nations Like a vessel in which no one delights. 3 Surely now they will say, "We have no king, For we do not revere the LORD . As for the king, what can he do for us?" 4 Yet I have been the LORD your God Since the land of Egypt; And you were not to know any god except Me, For there is no savior besides Me.
