They make promises, swearing falsely in making covenants. Therefore judgment springs up like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field.

The inhabitants of Samaria will be in terror for the calves of Beth Aven, for its people will mourn over it, along with its priests who rejoiced over it, for its glory, because it has departed from it. It also will be carried to Assyria for a present to a great king.

Ephraim will receive shame, and Israel will be ashamed of his own counsel.

Samaria and her king float away, like a twig on the water.

The high places also of Aven, the sin of Israel, will be destroyed. The thorn and the thistle will come up on their altars. They will tell the mountains, “Cover us!” and the hills, “Fall on us!”

Israel, you have sinned from the days of Gibeah. There they remained.

The battle against the children of iniquity doesn’t overtake them in Gibeah.
