Hosea 12 ©
Ephraim and Judah are both reproved. In consideration of God's former favours to Jacob they are exhorted to repent. Ephraim's sins and ingratitude provoke God.
EPHRAIM feedeth on awind, and followeth after the east wind: bhe daily increaseth lies and desolation; and cthey do make a covenant with the Assyrians, and doil is carried into Egypt.
