Threshing floor and wine press will not feed them, And the new wine will fail them.
They will not remain in the LORD’S land, But Ephraim will return to Egypt, And in Assyria they will eat unclean food.
They will not pour out drink offerings of wine to the LORD, Nor will their sacrifices please Him. Their bread will be
to them like mourners’ bread; All who eat it will be defiled, Because their bread will be for themselves alone;
It will not enter the house of the LORD.
What will you do on the day of the appointed festival And on the day of the feast of the LORD?
For behold, they will be gone because of destruction; Egypt will gather them together, Memphis will bury them. Weeds will take possession of their treasures of silver; Thorns will be
in their tents.
The days of punishment have come, The days of retribution have come; Let Israel know this!
The prophet is a fool, The inspired person is insane, Because of the grossness of your wrongdoing, And because your
hostility is so
a watchman with my God, a prophet; Yet
the snare of a bird catcher is in all his ways, And
there is only
hostility in the house of his God.
