1 Ephraim has compassed me with falsehood, and the house of Israel and Juda with ungodliness: [but] now God knows them, and they shall be called God’s holy people. 2 But Ephraim is an evil spirit, he has chased the east wind all the day: he has multiplied empty and vain things, and made a covenant with the Assyrians, and oil has gone in the way of traffic into Egypt. 3 And the Lord [has] a controversy with Juda, in order to punish Jacob: according to his ways and according to his practices will he recompense him. 4 He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and in his labours he had power with God. 5 And he prevailed with the angel and was strong: they wept, and intreated me: they found me in the house of On, and there [a word] was spoken to them. 6 But the Lord God Almighty shall be his memorial. 7 Thou therefore shalt return to thy God: keep thou mercy and judgment, and draw nigh to thy God continually. 8 [As for] Chanaan, in his hand is a balance of unrighteousness: he has loved to tyrannize. 9 And Ephraim said, Nevertheless I am rich, I have found refreshment to myself. None of his labours shall be found [available] to him, by reason of the sins which he has committed. 10 But I the Lord thy God brought thee up out of the land of Egypt: I will yet cause thee to dwell in tabernacles, according to the days of the feast. 11 And I will speak to the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and by the means of the prophets I was represented. 12 If Galaad exists not, then the chiefs in Galaad when they sacrificed were false, and their altars were as heaps on the ground of the field. 13 And Jacob retreated into the plain of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and waited for a wife. 14 And the Lord brought Israel out of the land of Egypt by a prophet, and by a prophet was he preserved. 15 Ephraim was angry and excited, therefore his blood shall be poured out upon him, and the Lord shall recompense to him his reproach. ΕΚΥΚΛΩΣΕ με ἐν ψεύδει ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ ἐν ἀσεβείας οἶκος ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιούδα. νῦν ἔγνω αὐτοὺς ὁ Θεός, καὶ λαὸς ἅγιος κεκλήσεται Θεοῦ. 2 ὁ δὲ ᾿Εφραὶμ πονηρὸν πνεῦμα ἐδίωξε, καύσωνα ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν· κενὰ καὶ μάταια ἐπλήθυνε καὶ διαθήκην μετὰ ᾿Ασσυρίων διέθετο, καὶ ἔλαιον εἰς Αἴγυπτον ἐνεπορεύετο. 3 καὶ κρίσις τῷ Κυρίῳ πρὸς ᾿Ιούδαν τοῦ ἐκδικῆσαι τὸν ᾿Ιακώβ· κατὰ τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ κατὰ τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα αὐτοῦ ἀποδώσει αὐτῷ. 4 ἐν τῇ κοιλίᾳ ἐπτέρνισε τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν κόποις αὐτοῦ ἐνίσχυσε πρὸς Θεὸν 5 καὶ ἐνίσχυσε μετὰ ἀγγέλου, καὶ ἠδυνάσθη. ἔκλαυσαν καὶ ἐδεήθησάν μου, ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ῏Ων εὕροσάν με, καὶ ἐκεῖ ἐλαλήθη πρὸς αὐτούς. 6 ὁ δὲ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὁ παντοκράτωρ ἔσται μνημόσυνον αὐτοῦ. 7 καὶ σὺ ἐν Θεῷ σου ἐπιστρέψεις· ἔλεον καὶ κρίμα φυλάσσου καὶ ἔγγιζε πρὸς τὸν Θεόν σου διαπαντός. - 8 Χαναὰν ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ ζυγὸς ἀδικίας, καταδυναστεύειν ἠγάπησε. 9 καὶ εἶπε ᾿Εφραίμ· πλὴν πεπλούτηκα, εὕρηκα ἀναψυχὴν ἐμαυτῷ. πάντες οἱ πόνοι αὐτοῦ οὐχ εὑρεθήσονται αὐτῷ, δι᾿ ἀδικίας ἃς ἥμαρτεν. 10 ἐγὼ δὲ Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ἀνήγαγόν σε ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου, ἔτι κατοικιῶ σε ἐν σκηναῖς καθὼς ἡμέρᾳ ἑορτῆς. 11 καὶ λαλήσω πρὸς προφήτας, καὶ ἐγὼ ὁράσεις ἐπλήθυνα καὶ ἐν χερσὶ προφητῶν ὡμοιώθην. 12 εἰ μὴ Γαλαὰδ ἐστιν, ἄρα ψευδεῖς ἦσαν ἐν Γαλγὰλ ἄρχοντες θυσιάζοντες, καὶ τὰ θυσιαστήρια αὐτῶν ὡς χελῶναι ἐπὶ χέρσον ἀγροῦ. 13 καὶ ἀνεχώρησεν ᾿Ιακὼβ εἰς πεδίον Συρίας, καὶ ἐδούλευσεν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν γυναικὶ καὶ ἐν γυναικὶ ἐφυλάξατο. 14 καὶ ἐν προφήτῃ ἀνήγαγε Κύριος τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου, καὶ ἐν προφήτῃ διεφυλάχθη. 15 ἐθύμωσεν ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ παρώργισε, καὶ τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν ἐκχυθήσεται, καὶ τὸν ὀνειδισμὸν αὐτοῦ ἀνταποδώσει αὐτῷ Κύριος.
