8 1How can I give you up, O Ephraim? How can I surrender you, O Israel? How can I make you like 2Admah? How can I treat you like 3Zeboiim? My heart is turned over within Me, All My compassions are kindled.
9 I will 4not execute My fierce anger; I will not destroy Ephraim 5again. For 6I am God and not man, the 7Holy One in your midst, And I will not come in wrath.
10 They will 8walk after the LORD, He will 9roar like a lion; Indeed He will roar And His sons will come 10trembling from the west.
11 They will come trembling like birds from 11Egypt And like 12doves from the land of 13Assyria; And I will 14settle them in their houses, declares the LORD.
