New International Version
11 Ephraim is a trained heifer
that loves to thresh;
so I will put a yoke(A)
on her fair neck.
I will drive Ephraim,
Judah must plow,
and Jacob must break up the ground.
12 Sow(B) righteousness(C) for yourselves,
reap the fruit of unfailing love,
and break up your unplowed ground;(D)
for it is time to seek(E) the Lord,
until he comes
and showers his righteousness(F) on you.
13 But you have planted wickedness,
you have reaped evil,(G)
you have eaten the fruit of deception.(H)
Because you have depended on your own strength
and on your many warriors,(I)
