1 [He shall come] into their midst as the land, as an eagle against the house of the Lord, because they have transgressed my covenant, and have sinned against my law. 2 They shall soon cry out to me, [saying], O God, we know thee. 3 For Israel has turned away from good things; they have pursued an enemy. 4 They have made kings for themselves, but not by me: they have ruled, but they did not make it known to me: [of] their silver and their gold they have made images to themselves, that they might be destroyed. 5 Cast off thy calf, O Samaria; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will they be unable to purge themselves in Israel? 6 Whereas the workman made it, and it is not God; wherefore thy calf, Samaria, was a deceiver: 7 for they sowed blighted [seed], and their destruction shall await them, a sheaf of corn that avails not to make meal; and even if it should produce it, strangers shall devour it. 8 Israel is swallowed up: now is he become among the nations as a worthless vessel. 9 For they have gone up to the Assyrians: Ephraim has been strengthened against himself; they loved gifts. 10 Therefore shall they be delivered to the nations: now I will receive them, and they shall cease a little to anoint a king and princes. 11 Because Ephraim has multiplied altars, [his] beloved altars are become sins to him. 12 I will write down a multitude [of commands] for him; but his statutes are accounted strange things, [even] the beloved altars. 13 For if they should offer a sacrifice, and eat flesh, the Lord will not accept them: now will he remember their iniquities, and will take vengeance on their sins: they have returned to Egypt, and they shall eat unclean things among the Assyrians. 14 And Israel has forgotten him that made him, and they have built fanes, and Juda has multiplied walled cities: but I will send fire on his cities, and it shall devour their foundations. ΕΙΣ κόλπον αὐτῶν ὡς γῆ, ὡς ἀετὸς ἐπὶ οἶκον Κυρίου, ἀνθ᾿ ὧν παρέβησαν τὴν διαθήκην μου καὶ κατὰ τοῦ νόμου μου ἠσέβησαν. 2 ἐμὲ κεκράξονται· ὁ Θεός, ἐγνώκαμέν σε. 3 ὅτι ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπεστρέψατο ἀγαθά, ἐχθρὸν κατεδίωξαν. 4 ἑαυτοῖς ἐβασίλευσαν καὶ οὐ δι᾿ ἐμοῦ· ἦρξαν καὶ οὐκ ἐγνώρισάν μοι· τὸ ἀργύριον αὐτῶν καὶ τὸ χρυσίον αὐτῶν ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς εἴδωλα, ὅπως ἐξολοθρευθῶσιν. 5 ἀπότριψαι τὸν μόσχον σου, Σαμάρεια· παρωξύνθη ὁ θυμός μου ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς· ἕως τίνος οὐ μὴ δύνωνται καθαρισθῆναι ἐν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ; 6 καὶ αὐτὸ τέκτων ἐποίησε, καὶ οὐ θεός ἐστι· διότι πλανῶν ἦν ὁ μόσχος σου, Σαμάρεια. 7 ὅτι ἀνεμόφθορα ἔσπειραν, καὶ ἡ καταστροφὴ αὐτῶν ἐκδέξεται αὐτά· δράγμα οὐκ ἔχον ἰσχὺν τοῦ ποιῆσαι ἄλευρον· ἐὰν δὲ καὶ ποιήσῃ, ἀλλότριοι καταφάγονται αὐτό. 8 κατεπόθη ᾿Ισραήλ, νῦν ἐγένετο ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν ὡς σκεῦος ἄχρηστον, 9 ὅτι αὐτοὶ ἀνέβησαν εἰς ᾿Ασσυρίους· ἀνέθαλε καθ᾿ ἑαυτὸν ᾿Εφραίμ, δῶρα ἠγάπησαν· 10 διὰ τοῦτο παραδοθήσονται ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσι. νῦν εἰσδέξομαι αὐτούς, καὶ κοπάσουσι μικρὸν τοῦ χρίειν βασιλέα καὶ ἄρχοντας. 11 ὅτι ἐπλήθυνεν ᾿Εφραὶμ θυσιαστήρια, εἰς ἁμαρτίας ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ θυσιαστήρια ἠγαπημένα. 12 καταγράψω αὐτῷ πλῆθος καὶ τὰ νόμιμα αὐτοῦ, εἰς ἀλλότρια ἐλογίσθησαν θυσιαστήρια τὰ ἠγαπημένα. 13 διότι ἐὰν θύσωσι θυσίαν καὶ φάγωσι κρέα, Κύριος οὐ προσδέξεται αὐτά· νῦν μνησθήσεται τὰς ἀδικίας αὐτῶν καὶ ἐκδικήσει τὰς ἁμαρτίας αὐτῶν. αὐτοὶ εἰς Αἴγυπτον ἀπέστρεψαν καὶ ἐν ᾿Ασσυρίοις ἀκάθαρτα φάγονται. 14 καὶ ἐπελάθετο ᾿Ισραὴλ τοῦ ποιήσαντος αὐτὸν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν τεμένη, καὶ ᾿Ιούδας ἐπλήθυνε πόλεις τετειχισμένας· καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ πῦρ εἰς τὰς πόλεις αὐτοῦ, καὶ καταφάγεται τὰ θεμέλια αὐτῶν.
