The days of punishment have come,
    the days of recompense have come;
    Israel cries,[a]
‘The prophet is a fool,
    the man of the spirit is mad!’
Because of your great iniquity,
    your hostility is great.
The prophet is a sentinel for my God over Ephraim,
yet a fowler’s snare is on all his ways,
    and hostility in the house of his God.
They have deeply corrupted themselves
    as in the days of Gibeah;
he will remember their iniquity,
    he will punish their sins.
