God Will Bless Judah and Ephraim
10 Ask (A)rain from the Lord at the time of the spring rain—
The Lord who (B)makes the [a]storm clouds;
And He will give them (C)showers of rain, vegetation in the field to each man.
2 For the (D)teraphim speak [b]iniquity,
And the (E)diviners see [c]lying visions
And tell (F)false dreams;
They comfort in vain.
Therefore the people [d]wander like (G)sheep,
They are afflicted, because there is no shepherd.
3 “My (H)anger is kindled against the shepherds,
And I will punish the [e]male goats;
For the Lord of hosts has (I)visited His flock, the house of Judah,
And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.
