Footnotes

  1. 2 Kings 17:16 I.e. a wooden symbol of a female deity

(A)They have set up kings, but not by Me;
They have appointed princes, but I did not know it.
With their (B)silver and gold they have made idols for themselves,
That [a]they might be cut off.
[b]He has rejected your (C)calf, O Samaria, saying,
“My anger burns against them!”
How long will they be incapable of (D)innocence?
For from Israel is even this!
A (E)craftsman made it, so it is not God;
Surely the calf of Samaria will be broken to [c]pieces.
For (F)they sow the wind
And they reap the (G)whirlwind.
The standing grain has no [d]heads;
It yields (H)no [e]grain.
Should it yield, strangers would swallow it up.
