     in Israel?[a]

A workman made it;
    it is not God.
The calf of Samar′ia
    shall be broken to pieces.[b]

For they sow the wind,
    and they shall reap the whirlwind.
The standing grain has no heads,
    it shall yield no meal;
if it were to yield,
    aliens would devour it.
Israel is swallowed up;
    already they are among the nations
    as a useless vessel.
