Israel’s ·pride [arrogance] ·will cause their defeat [or testifies against him; L answers in his face]; they will not ·turn back [return] to the Lord their God or ·look to him for help [L seek him] in all this.
“Ephraim mingles with the pagans, dissipating himself. Ephraim is half-baked. Strangers suck him dry but he doesn’t even notice. His hair has turned gray— he doesn’t notice.

(And the pride of Israel shall be made low before them; but they did not return to the Lord their God, and they have not sought him, even after all these things.)
