The days of punishment(A) are coming,
    the days of reckoning(B) are at hand.
    Let Israel know this.
Because your sins(C) are so many
    and your hostility so great,
the prophet is considered a fool,(D)
    the inspired person a maniac.(E)
The prophet, along with my God,
    is the watchman over Ephraim,[a]
yet snares(F) await him on all his paths,
    and hostility in the house of his God.(G)
They have sunk deep into corruption,(H)
    as in the days of Gibeah.(I)
God will remember(J) their wickedness
    and punish them for their sins.(K)
