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.

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.

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
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
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.
