1: Israel is an empty vine, he bringeth forth fruit unto himself: according to the multitude of his fruit he hath increased the altars; according to the goodness of his land they have made goodly images.
2: Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: he shall break down their altars, he shall spoil their images.
3: For now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared not the LORD; what then should a king do to us?
4: They have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a covenant: thus judgment springeth up as hemlock in the furrows of the field.
5: The inhabitants of Samaria shall fear because of the calves of Bethaven: for the people thereof shall mourn over it, and the priests thereof that rejoiced on it, for the glory thereof, because it is departed from it.
6: It shall be also carried unto Assyria for a present to king Jareb: Ephraim shall receive shame, and Israel shall be ashamed of his own counsel.
7: As for Samaria, her king is cut off as the foam upon the water.
8: The high places also of Aven, the sin of Israel, shall be destroyed: the thorn and the thistle shall come up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us; and to the hills, Fall on us.
9: O Israel, thou hast sinned from the days of Gibeah: there they stood: the battle in Gibeah against the children of iniquity did not overtake them.
10: It is in my desire that I should chastise them; and the people shall be gathered against them, when they shall bind themselves in their two furrows.
11: And Ephraim is as an heifer that is taught, and loveth to tread out the corn; but I passed over upon her fair neck: I will make Ephraim to ride; Judah shall plow, and Jacob shall break his clods.
12: Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.
13: Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.
14: Therefore shall a tumult arise among thy people, and all thy fortresses shall be spoiled, as Shalman spoiled Betharbel in the day of battle: the mother was dashed in pieces upon her children.
15: So shall Bethel do unto you because of your great wickedness: in a morning shall the king of Israel utterly be cut off.

1: When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.
2: As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.
3: I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.
4: I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.
5: He shall not return into the land of Egypt, and the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return.
6: And the sword shall abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches, and devour them, because of their own counsels.
7: And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt him.
8: 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.
9: I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city.
10: They shall walk after the LORD: he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.
11: They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of Assyria: and I will place them in their houses, saith the LORD.
12: Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.

1: O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
2: Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
3: Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
4: Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
5: Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
6: O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
7: He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
8: He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
9: Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
10: And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:
11: Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:
12: When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.
13: When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people;
14: He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;
15: Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
16: Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.
17: He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:
18: Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:
19: Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.
20: The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.
21: He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:
22: To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.
23: Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24: And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.
25: He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.
26: He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27: They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.
28: He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.
29: He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
30: Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.
31: He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts.
32: He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.
33: He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.
34: He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number,
35: And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
36: He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.
37: He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
38: Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.
39: He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.
40: The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41: He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.
42: For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.
43: And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:
44: And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;
45: That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.
