God’s Anger with Israel’s Arrogance

The Lord sends a [a]message against Jacob,
And it falls on Israel.
And all the people know it,
That is, (A)Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria,
Asserting in pride and in (B)arrogance of heart:

But we will (C)rebuild with smooth stones;
The sycamores have been cut down,
But we will replace them with cedars.”
