Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
12 E′phraim herds the wind,
and pursues the east wind all day long;
they multiply falsehood and violence;
they make a bargain with Assyria,
and oil is carried to Egypt.

and will punish Jacob according to his ways,
and requite him according to his deeds.
3 In the womb he took his brother by the heel,
and in his manhood he strove with God.
