Tree of Life Version
2 Rebels were deep in slaughter,
so I am a chastisement for them all.
3 I myself have known Ephraim,
and Israel is not hidden from Me.
For now, Ephraim, you are a prostitute—
Israel is defiled!
4 They will not give up their evil deeds
to return to their God.
For a spirit of prostitution is in them,
and Adonai they have not known.
