Israel has rejected the good;
The enemy will pursue him.
(A)They have set up kings, but not by Me;
They have appointed princes, but I did not know it.
With their (B)silver and gold they have made idols for themselves,
That [a]they might be cut off.
[b]He has rejected your (C)calf, O Samaria, saying,
“My anger burns against them!”
How long will they be incapable of (D)innocence?
