1 In gutture tuo sit tuba! Quasi aquila super domum Do mini pro eo quod transgressi sunt foedus meum et legem meam praevaricati sunt.
2 Me invocant: "Deus meus"; cognovimus te, Israel.
3 Proiecit Israel bonum; inimicus persequetur eum.
4 Ipsi constituerunt reges, et non ex me; principes constituerunt, et non cognovi: argentum suum et aurum suum fecerunt sibi idola, ut interirent.
5 Proiectus est vitulus tuus, Samaria; iratus est furor meus in eos. Usquequo non poterunt emundari?
6 Quia ex Israel et ipse est: artifex fecit illum, et non est Deus; quoniam in scintillas erit vitulus Samariae.
7 Quia ventum seminabunt et turbinem metent; cum culmus non sit in eo, germen non faciet farinam: quod et si fecerit, alieni comedent eam.
8 Devoratus est Israel, nunc factus est in nationibus quasi vas immundum.
9 Quia ipsi ascenderunt ad Assyriam, onager est solitarius sibi; Ephraim autem munera dederunt amatoribus.
10 Sed et cum mercede conduxerint nationes, nunc compellam eos, et trement paulisper sub onere regis principum.
11 Cum multiplicaret Ephraim altaria pro peccato, factae sunt ei arae in peccatum.
12 Scribebam ei multiplices leges meas; velut alienae computatae sunt.
13 Hostias amant, immolant carnes et comedunt; sed Dominus non suscipiet eas. Nunc recordabitur iniquitatis eorum et visitabit peccata eorum: ipsi in Aegyptum convertentur.
14 Et oblitus est Israel factoris sui et aedificavit delubra; et Iudas multiplicavit urbes munitas. Et mittam ignem in civitates eius, et devorabit aedes illius.
King James Version
1 Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the LORD, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
2 Israel shall cry unto me, My God, we know thee.
3 Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.
4 They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.
5 ¶ Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency?
6 For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.
7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.
8 Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.
9 For they are gone up to Assyria, a wild ass alone by himself: Ephraim hath hired lovers.
10 Yea, though they have hired among the nations, now will I gather them, and they shall sorrow a little for the burden of the king of princes.
11 Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin.
12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.
13 They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; but the LORD accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.
14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.
