“As for Ephraim, their glory shall flee away like a bird: from the birth and from the wombe, and from the conception.”
King James Version (KJV)
8. The watchman of Ephraim was with my God: but the Prophet is a snare of a fouler in all his wayes, and hatred in the house of his God. 9. They haue deeply corrupted themselues as in the dayes of Gibeah: therefore he will remember their iniquitie, he will visite their sinnes. 10. I found Israel like grapes in the wildernesse: I saw your fathers as the first ripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselues vnto that shame, and their abominations were according as they loued. 11. As for Ephraim, their glory shall flee away like a bird: from the birth and from the wombe, and from the conception. 12. Though they bring vp their children, yet wil I bereaue them that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them. 13. Ephraim, as I saw Tyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring foorth his children to the murderer. 14. Giue them, O Lord: what wilt thou giue? giue them a miscarying wombe, and drie breasts.
