“Giue them, O Lord: what wilt thou giue? giue them a miscarying wombe, and drie breasts.”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 15. All their wickednesse is in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickednesse of their doings I will driue them out of mine house, I will loue them no more: all their princes are reuolters. 16. Ephraim is smitten, their roote is dried vp, they shall beare no fruite: yea though they bring foorth, yet wil I slay euen the beloued fruite of their wombe. 17. My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken vnto him: and they shalbe wanderers among the nations.
