For the sons of Israel will remain for many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar and without ephod or household idols.
Listen to the word of the LORD , O sons of Israel, For the LORD has a case against the inhabitants of the land, Because there is no faithfulness or kindness Or knowledge of God in the land.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
For I will be like a lion to Ephraim And like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear to pieces and go away, I will carry away, and there will be none to deliver.
All of them are hot like an oven, And they consume their rulers; All their kings have fallen. None of them calls on Me.
So Ephraim has become like a silly dove, without sense; They call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.
For they sow the wind And they reap the whirlwind. The standing grain has no heads; It yields no grain. Should it yield, strangers would swallow it up.
Israel is swallowed up; They are now among the nations Like a vessel in which no one delights.
Surely now they will say, "We have no king, For we do not revere the LORD . As for the king, what can he do for us?"
Yet I have been the LORD your God Since the land of Egypt; And you were not to know any god except Me, For there is no savior besides Me.
