A (10:15) So shall Bethel DO <06213> unto you because of your great wickedness:
B (10:15, 11:2) in a morning shall the king OF ISRAEL utterly be cut off. When ISRAEL was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt. As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.
C (11:3) I taught EPHRAIM also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.
D (11:4) I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as THEY THAT TAKE OFF <07311> the yoke on their jaws,
E (11:4) and I laid MEAT <0398> unto them.
F (11:5) HE SHALL NOT RETURN into the land of Egypt,
G (11:5) but the Assyrian shall be his king,
F (11:5) because they refused TO RETURN.
E′ (11:6) And the sword shall abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches, and DEVOUR <0398> them, because of their own counsels.
D′ (11:7) And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all WOULD EXALT <07311> him.
C′ (11:8) How shall I give thee up, EPHRAIM?
B′ (11:8) 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.
A′ (11:9) I WILL NOT EXECUTE <06213> 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.
