For their mother hath played the harlot : she that conceived them hath done shamefully : for she said , I will go after my lovers , that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.
For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, whereof she hath said , These are my rewards that my lovers have given me: and I will make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.
And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.
They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD.
Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give ? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.
How shall I give thee up , Ephraim? how shall I deliver thee, Israel? how shall I make thee as Admah? how shall I set thee as Zeboim? mine heart is turned within me, my repentings are kindled together.
I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst , Give me a king and princes?
I gave thee a king in mine anger, and took him away in my wrath.
