Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!
13Ephraim, as I sawTyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer .
14Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give ? give them a miscarryingawomb and drybreasts.15
All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more : all their princes are revolters .
16Ephraim is smitten , their root is dried up , they shall bearb no fruit: yea, though they bring forth , yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.17
My God will cast them away , because they did not hearken unto him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations.
