Chapter 12

1

Ephraim feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind: he daily multiplieth lies and desolation; and they do make a covenant with the Assyrians, and oil is carried into Egypt.

2

The LORD hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him.

3

He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God:

4

Yes, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication to him: he found him in Beth-el, and there he spoke with us;

5

Even the LORD God of hosts; the LORD is his memorial.

6

Therefore turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually.

7

He is a merchant, the balances of deceit are in his hand: he loveth to oppress.

8

And Ephraim said, Yet I have become rich, I have found for myself substance: in all my labors they shall find no iniquity in me that were sin.

9

And I that am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast.

10

I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes by the ministry of the prophets.

11

Is there iniquity in Gilead? surely they are vanity: they sacrifice bullocks in Gilgal; yes, their altars are as heaps in the furrows of the fields.

12

And Jacob fled into the country of Syria, and Israel served for a wife, and for a wife he kept sheep.

13

And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.

14

Ephraim provoked him to anger most bitterly: therefore will he leave his blood upon him, and his reproach will his Lord return to him.
