And they have made deep the pit of Shittim;[a]
    but I will chastise all of them.

I know E′phraim,
    and Israel is not hid from me;
for now, O E′phraim, you have played the harlot,
    Israel is defiled.
Their deeds do not permit them
    to return to their God.
For the spirit of harlotry is within them,
    and they know not the Lord.
