New American Bible (Revised Edition)
The Death of Ephraim
1 When Ephraim spoke there was terror;
he was exalted in Israel;[a]
but he became guilty through Baal and died.
2 Now they continue to sin,
making for themselves molten images,
Silver idols according to their skill,(A)
all of them the work of artisans.
“To these, offer sacrifice,” they say.
People kiss calves![b](B)
