81How can I give you up, O Ephraim? How can I surrender you, O Israel? How can I amake you like 2Admah? How can I treat you like 3Zeboiim? My heart is turnedoverwithin Me, bAll My compassions are kindled.
I will 4not execute My fierceanger; I will not destroyEphraim5again. For 6I am God and not man, the 7HolyOne in your midst, And I will not come in cwrath.
They will 8walkafter the LORD, He will 9roar like a lion; Indeed He will roar And His sons will come10trembling from the west.
They will cometrembling like birds from 11Egypt And like 12doves from the land of 13Assyria; And I will 14settle them in their houses, declares the LORD.
