International Standard Version
The Lord’s Anger against Israel
13 “When the tribe of[a] Ephraim spoke, there was trembling;
and it was exalted within Israel.
But when they offended God by Baal,
2 but now they are sinning more and more,
crafting idols from melted silver.
Their idols are made with the most exacting skill,
all of it the work of craftsmen.
People[b] say about them,
‘They offer human sacrifice,
and kiss calf-shaped idols.’[c]
