Common English Bible
2 In their wicked condition, they have sunk deep into corruption;
I will correct them through judgment.
3 I know Ephraim;
Israel doesn’t escape my eye;
for now Ephraim
you have acted like a prostitute;
Israel is defiled.
4 Their deeds don’t allow them
to return to their God,
because the spirit of prostitution is within them,
and they don’t know the Lord.
