For from Israel is even this!
A (A)craftsman made it, so it is not God;
Surely the calf of Samaria will be broken to [a]pieces.
For (B)they sow the wind
And they reap the (C)whirlwind.
The standing grain has no [b]heads;
It yields (D)no [c]grain.
Should it yield, strangers would swallow it up.

Israel is (E)swallowed up;
They are now among the nations
Like a (F)vessel in which no one delights.
