20 [a]They slice off what is on the right hand but still are (A)hungry,
And [b]they eat what is on the left hand but they are not satisfied;
Each of them eats the (B)flesh of his own arm.
21 Manasseh devours Ephraim, and Ephraim Manasseh,
(C)And together they are against Judah.
(D)In spite of all this, His anger does not turn away
And His hand is still stretched out.

    but still be hungry;(A)
on the left they will eat,(B)

    together they will turn against Judah.(D)

Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away,
    his hand is still upraised.(E)
