Chapter 12

1

 Ephraim feedeth on the wind, and followeth the burning heat: all the day long he multiplied lies and desolation: and he hath made a covenant with the Assyrians, and carried oil into Egypt. 


2

 Therefore there is a judgment of the Lord with Juda, and a visitation for Jacob: he will render to him according to his ways, and according to his devices. 


3

 In the womb he supplanted his brother: and by his strength he had success with an angel. 


4

 And he prevailed over the angel, and was strengthened: he wept, and made supplication to him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spoke with us. 


5

 Even the Lord the God of hosts, the Lord is his memorial. 


6

 Therefore turn thou to thy God : keep mercy and judgment, and hope in thy God always. 


7

 He is like Chanaan, there is a deceitful balance in his hand, he hath loved oppression. 


8

 And Ephraim said: But yet I am be- come rich, I have found me an idol: all my labours shall not find me the iniquity that I have committed. 


9

 And I that am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt, will yet cause thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the feast. 


10

 And I have spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and I have used similitudes by the ministry of the prophets. 


11

 If Galaad be an idol, then in vain were they in Galgal offering sacrifices with bullocks: for their altars also are as heaps in the furrows of the field. 


12

 Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and was a keeper for a wife. 


13

 But the Lord by a prophet brought Israel out of Egypt: and he was pre- served by a prophet. 


14

 Ephraim hath provoked me to wrath with his bitterness, and his blood shall come upon him, and his Lord will render his reproach unto him.
