Hosea 12 ©
1 Ephraim and Judah are both reproved. 3 In consideration of God's former favours to Jacob they are exhorted to repent. 7 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.
¶He took his brother gby the heel in the womb, and by his strength hhe 2had power with God:
wEphraim provoked him to anger 8most bitterly: xtherefore shall he leave his 9blood upon him, and his yreproach shall his Lord return unto him.
