Ephraim’s watchman is with my God.
Yet the prophet encounters a bird trap
on all his pathways.(A)
Hostility is in the house of his God!
They have deeply corrupted themselves(B)
as in the days of Gibeah.(C)
He will remember their iniquity;
he will punish their sins.(D)

Ephraim Bereaved of Offspring

10 I discovered Israel
like grapes in the wilderness.(E)
I saw your ancestors
like the first fruit of the fig tree in its first season.(F)
But they went to Baal-peor,(G)
consecrated themselves to Shame,[a](H)
and became abhorrent,(I)
like the thing they loved.
