8 Ephraim 1mixes himself with the peoples; Ephraim is a cake not turned.
9 2Strangers devour his strength, and 3he knows it not; gray hairs are sprinkled upon him, and 4he knows it not.
10 5The pride of Israel testifies to his face;a 6yet they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek him, for all this.
11 Ephraim is like a dove, 7silly and without sense, calling to 8Egypt, going to 9Assyria.
