The Lord’s anger against Israel

13 When Ephraim spoke, people trembled;
    he was exalted in Israel.
    But he became guilty of Baal worship and died.
Now they sin more and more;
    they make idols for themselves from their silver,

    all of them the work of craftsmen.
It is said of these people,
    ‘They offer human sacrifices!
    They kiss[a] calf-idols!’
