The inhabitants of Samaria tremble for the calf a of Beth-aven. Its people shall mourn for it, and its idolatrous priests shall wail b over it, over its glory that has departed from it.
The thing itself shall be carried to Assyria as tribute to the great king. c Ephraim shall be put to shame, and Israel shall be ashamed of his idol. d
