You refuse to obey me.
    You are knee-deep in killing.
    So I will punish all of you.
I know all about the people of Ephraim.
    What Israel is doing is not hidden from me.
Now they have joined themselves to other gods.
    They have made themselves ‘unclean.’

“They can’t return to me
    because they have done so many evil things.
In their hearts they long to act like prostitutes.
    They do not recognize me as the Lord.
