Hosea 5:11; Hosea 6:4; Hosea 7:11; Hosea 9:6; Hosea 11:2; Hosea 13:3
Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment, because he willingly walked after the commandment.
O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away .
Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.
For, lo, they are gone because of destruction: Egypt shall gather them up , Memphis shall bury them: the pleasant places for their silver, nettles shall possess them: thorns shall be in their tabernacles.
As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.
Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud, and as the early dew that passeth away , as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the floor, and as the smoke out of the chimney.
