5 What do ye at the day appointed? And at the day of Jehovah's festival?
6 For, lo, they have gone because of destruction, Egypt gathereth them, Moph burieth them, The desirable things of their silver, Nettles possess them -- a thorn 'is' in their tents.
7 Come in have the days of inspection, Come in have the days of recompence, Israel doth know! a fool 'is' the prophet, Mad 'is' the man of the Spirit, Because of the abundance of thine iniquity, And great 'is' the hatred.
8 Ephraim is looking 'away' from My God, The prophet! a snare of a fowler 'is' over all his ways, Hatred 'is' in the house of his God.
9 They have gone deep -- have done corruptly, As 'in' the days of Gibeah, He doth remember their iniquity, He doth inspect their sins.
