King James Version
3 Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.
4 They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.
5 Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency?Read full chapter
New International Version
3 But Israel has rejected what is good;
an enemy will pursue him.(A)
4 They set up kings without my consent;
they choose princes without my approval.(B)
With their silver and gold
they make idols(C) for themselves
to their own destruction.
5 Samaria, throw out your calf-idol!(D)
My anger burns against them.
How long will they be incapable of purity?(E)
