New International Reader's Version
The Lord Is Angry With Israel
8 The Lord has sent a message against Jacob’s people.
He will punish Israel.
9 All the people will know about it.
Ephraim’s people and those who live in Samaria will know about it.
Their hearts are very proud.
10 “The brick buildings have fallen down.
But we will rebuild them with blocks of stone.
The fig trees have been chopped down.
But we’ll plant cedar trees in place of them.”
