The Lord’s Anger Against Israel

The Lord has sent a message(A) against Jacob;
    it will fall on Israel.
All the people will know it—
    Ephraim(B) and the inhabitants of Samaria(C)
who say with pride
    and arrogance(D) of heart,
10 “The bricks have fallen down,
    but we will rebuild with dressed stone;(E)
the fig(F) trees have been felled,
    but we will replace them with cedars.(G)
11 But the Lord has strengthened Rezin’s(H) foes against them
    and has spurred their enemies on.
12 Arameans(I) from the east and Philistines(J) from the west

    his hand is still upraised.(M)
