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.
