1 Hear these things, ye priests; and attend, O house of Israel; and hearken, O house of the king; for the controversy is with you, because ye have been a snare in Scopia, and as a net spread on Itabyrium, 2 which they that hunt the prey have fixed: but I will correct you. 3 I know Ephraim, and Israel is not far from me: for now Ephraim has gone grievously a-whoring, Israel is defiled. 4 They have not framed their counsels to return to their God, for the spirit of fornication is in them, and they have not known the Lord. 5 And the pride of Israel shall be brought low before his face; and Israel and Ephraim shall fall in their iniquities; and Judas also shall fall with them. 6 They shall go with sheep and calves diligently to seek the Lord; but they shall not find him, for he has withdrawn himself from them. 7 For they have forsaken the Lord; for strange children have been born to them: now shall the cankerworm devour them and their heritages. 8 Blow ye the trumpet on the hills, sound aloud on the heights: proclaim in the house of On, Benjamin is amazed. 9 Ephraim has come to nought in the days of reproof: in the tribes of Israel I have shown faithful [dealings]. 10 The princes of Juda became as they that removed the bounds: I will pour out upon them my fury as water. 11 Ephraim altogether prevailed against his adversary, he trod judgment under foot, for he began to go after vanities. 12 Therefore I [will be] as consternation to Ephraim, and as a goad to the house of Juda. 13 And Ephraim saw his disease, and Judas his pain; then Ephraim went to the Assyrians, and sent ambassadors to king Jarim: but he could not heal you, and your pain shall in nowise cease from you. 14 Wherefore I am as a panther to Ephraim, and as a lion to the house of Juda: and I will tear, and go away; and I will take, and there shall be none to deliver. 15 I will go and return to my place, until they are brought to nought, and [then] shall they seek my face; in their affliction they will seek me early, saying, ΑΚΟΥΣΑΤΕ ταῦτα, οἱ ἱερεῖς, καὶ προσέχετε, οἶκος ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ὁ οἶκος τοῦ βασιλέως, ἐνωτίζεσθε, διότι πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐστι τὸ κρίμα· ὅτι παγὶς ἐγενήθητε τῇ σκοπιᾷ καὶ ὡς δίκτυον ἐκτεταμένον ἐπὶ τὸ ᾿Ιταβύριον, 2 ὃ οἱ ἀγρεύοντες τὴν θήραν κατέπηξαν. ἐγὼ δὲ παιδευτὴς ὑμῶν· 3 ἐγὼ ἔγνων τὸν ᾿Εφραίμ, καὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ οὐκ ἀπέστη ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ· διότι νῦν ἐξεπόρνευσεν ᾿Εφραίμ, ἐμιάνθη ᾿Ισραήλ. 4 οὐκ ἔδωκαν τὰ διαβούλια αὐτῶν τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν αὐτῶν, ὅτι πνεῦμα πορνείας ἐν αὐτοῖς ἐστι, τὸν δὲ Κύριον οὐκ ἐπέγνωσαν. 5 καὶ ταπεινωθήσεται ἡ ὕβρις τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ, καὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ᾿Εφραὶμ ἀσθενήσουσιν ἐν ταῖς ἀδικίαις αὐτῶν, καὶ ἀσθενήσει καὶ ᾿Ιούδας μετ᾿ αὐτῶν. 6 μετὰ προβάτων καὶ μόσχων πορεύσονται τοῦ ἐκζητῆσαι τὸν Κύριον καὶ οὐ μὴ εὕρωσιν αὐτόν, ὅτι ἐκκέκλικεν ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν, 7 ὅτι τὸν Κύριον ἐγκατέλιπον, ὅτι τέκνα ἀλλότρια ἐγεννήθησαν αὐτοῖς· νῦν καταφάγεται αὐτοὺς ἡ ἐρυσίβη, καὶ τοὺς κλήρους αὐτῶν. - 8 Σαλπίσατε σάλπιγγι ἐπὶ τοὺς βουνούς, ἠχήσατε ἐπὶ τῶν ὑψηλῶν, κηρύξατε ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ῏Ων· ἐξέστη Βενιαμίν, 9 ᾿Εφραὶμ εἰς ἀφανισμὸν ἐγένετο ἐν ἡμέραις ἐλέγχου· ἐν ταῖς φυλαῖς τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἔδειξα πιστά. 10 ἐγένοντο οἱ ἄρχοντες ᾿Ιούδα ὡς μετατιθέντες ὅρια, ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς ἐκχεῶ ὡς ὕδωρ τὸ ὅρμημά μου. 11 κατεδυνάστευσεν ᾿Εφραὶμ τὸν ἀντίδικον αὐτοῦ, κατεπάτησε κρίμα, ὅτι ἤρξατο πορεύεσθαι ὀπίσω τῶν ματαίων. 12 καὶ ἐγὼ ὡς ταραχὴ τῷ ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ ὡς κέντρον τῷ οἴκῳ ᾿Ιούδα. 13 καὶ εἶδεν ᾿Εφραὶμ τὴν νόσον αὐτοῦ καὶ ᾿Ιούδας τὴν ὀδύνην αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπορεύθη ᾿Εφραὶμ πρὸς ᾿Ασσυρίους καὶ ἀπέστειλε πρέσβεις πρὸς βασιλέα ᾿Ιαρείμ· καὶ αὐτὸς οὐκ ἠδυνάσθη ἰάσασθαι ὑμᾶς, καὶ οὐ μὴ διαπαύσῃ ἐξ ὑμῶν ὀδύνη. 14 διότι ἐγώ εἰμι ὡς πανθὴρ τῷ ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ ὡς λέων τῷ οἴκῳ ᾿Ιούδα· καὶ ἐγὼ ἁρπῶμαι καὶ πορεύσομαι καὶ λήψομαι, καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ ἐξαιρούμενος. 15 πορεύσομαι καὶ ἐπιστρέψω εἰς τὸν τόπον μου, ἕως οὗ ἀφανισθῶσι· καὶ ζητήσουσι τὸ πρόσωπόν μου, ἐν θλίψει αὐτῶν ὀρθριοῦσι πρός με λέγοντες·
