Hosea 12:2-4 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
2 Ephraim is grazing on wind
and pursuing the east wind.
All day he multiplies lies and ruin:
making a pact with Assyria,
while carrying oil to Egypt.
3 Adonai also has a dispute with Judah:
He will punish Jacob for his ways,
repaying him for his deeds.
4 In the womb he grasped his brother’s heel,
and in his vigor he strove with God.
