New King James Version
3 Israel has rejected the good;
The enemy will pursue him.
4 “They(A) set up kings, but not by Me;
They made princes, but I did not acknowledge them.
From their silver and gold
They made idols for themselves—
That they might be cut off.
5 Your [a]calf [b]is rejected, O Samaria!
My anger is aroused against them—
(B)How long until they attain to innocence?
New International Version
3 But Israel has rejected what is good;
an enemy will pursue him.(A)
4 They set up kings without my consent;
they choose princes without my approval.(B)
With their silver and gold
they make idols(C) for themselves
to their own destruction.
5 Samaria, throw out your calf-idol!(D)
My anger burns against them.
How long will they be incapable of purity?(E)
