13 “Sang una, kon maghambal na gani ang tribo sang Efraim nagakurog sa kahadlok ang iban nga mga tribo sang Israel, kag ginadayaw nila siya. Pero nakasala ang iya katawhan tungod sang ila pagsimba kay Baal. Amo gani nga nagkalamatay[a] sila. Karon, kamo nga ginatawag Efraim[b] padayon nga nagapakasala.[c] Kay nagahimo kamo sang mga imahen nga mga dios-dios halin sa inyo mga pilak agod inyo simbahon. Pero ini tanan hinimo man lang sang tawo kag suno man lang sa iya nga naisipan. Nagasiling pa kamo nga magahalad kamo sang tawo sa sini nga mga dios-dios nga baka kag magahalok sa ila. Gani madula kamo pareho sang ambon ukon tun-og sa kaagahon, ukon pareho sang upa sa linasan nga ginapalid sang hangin ukon sang aso nga nagaguwa sa simboryo.

“Ako ang Ginoo nga inyo Dios nga nagpaguwa sa inyo sa Egipto.[d] Wala na kamo sing kilalahon pa nga Dios kag Manluluwas kundi ako lang. Gin-atipan ko kamo sa desierto, sa mamala gid nga lugar. Pero sang ginpakamaayo ko kamo kag nag-uswag kamo, nangin bugalon kamo kag ginkalimtan na ninyo ako. 7-8 Gani salakayon ko kamo kag laglagon pareho sang pagsalakay kag paggus-ab sang mapintas nga sapat sa iya biktima, pareho sang ginahimo sang leon ukon sang oso[e] nga gin-agawan sang mga anak. Magabantay ako sa mga dalan sa pagsalakay sa inyo pareho sang sapat nga leopardo. Laglagon ko kamo nga mga taga-Israel, tungod kay kontra ninyo ako nga inyo manugbulig. 10 Ti diin na ang inyo hari kag ang mga pangulo sang inyo mga banwa nga magaluwas sa inyo? Ginpangayo ninyo sila sa akon, 11 gani sa akon kaakig ginhatag ko sila sa inyo, kag sa akon man kaugot ginkuha ko sila. 12 Ang inyo[f] mga sala indi ko gid pagkalimtan, daw pareho ina sa kasulatan nga ginputos kag gintago.

13 “May kahigayunan kamo nga magkabuhi liwat. Pero tungod kay wala kamo sing paghangop, ginabaliwala ninyo ini. Pareho kamo sa bata nga indi gusto magguwa sa tiyan sa tion nga inugguwa na niya. 14 Luwason ko bala kamo sa kamatayon? Indi! Hambalon ko pa gani ang kamatayon, ‘Diin na ang imo kalalat-an, O kamatayon? Diin na ang imo kalaglagan para sa sini nga mga tawo?’

“Indi ko gid kamo pagkaluoyan. 15 Bisan pa nga mas mauswagon kamo sang sa inyo mga kadugo, laglagon ko kamo. Ipadala ko ang mainit nga hangin halin sa desierto sa sidlangan kag magakalahubas ang inyo mga tuburan kag mga bubon. Kag pagaagawon ang inyo malahalon nga mga pagkabutang. 16 Dapat nga silutan ang mga taga-Samaria tungod sang ila nga pagrebelde sa akon nga ila nga Dios. Magakalamatay sila sa inaway. Pagadugmukon ang ila magagmay nga mga bata, kag pagaririan ang tiyan sang ila nagabulusong nga mga babayi.”

  2. 13:2 kamo nga ginatawag Efraim: buot silingon, ang mga taga-Israel.
  3. 13:2 padayon nga nagapakasala: ukon, nagadugang pa gid ang inyo pagpakasala.
  4. 13:4 nga nagpaguwa sa inyo sa Egipto: ukon, halin pa sang tion nga didto kamo sa Egipto.

The Lord’s Anger Against Israel

13 When Ephraim spoke, people trembled;(A)
    he was exalted(B) in Israel.
    But he became guilty of Baal worship(C) and died.
Now they sin more and more;
    they make(D) idols for themselves from their silver,(E)
cleverly fashioned images,
    all of them the work of craftsmen.(F)
It is said of these people,
    “They offer human sacrifices!
    They kiss[a](G) calf-idols!(H)
Therefore they will be like the morning mist,
    like the early dew that disappears,(I)
    like chaff(J) swirling from a threshing floor,(K)
    like smoke(L) escaping through a window.

“But I have been the Lord your God
    ever since you came out of Egypt.(M)
You shall acknowledge(N) no God but me,(O)
    no Savior(P) except me.
I cared for you in the wilderness,(Q)
    in the land of burning heat.
When I fed them, they were satisfied;
    when they were satisfied, they became proud;(R)
    then they forgot(S) me.(T)
So I will be like a lion(U) to them,
    like a leopard I will lurk by the path.
Like a bear robbed of her cubs,(V)
    I will attack them and rip them open;
like a lion(W) I will devour them—
    a wild animal will tear them apart.(X)

“You are destroyed, Israel,
    because you are against me,(Y) against your helper.(Z)
10 Where is your king,(AA) that he may save you?
    Where are your rulers in all your towns,
of whom you said,
    ‘Give me a king and princes’?(AB)
11 So in my anger I gave you a king,(AC)
    and in my wrath I took him away.(AD)
12 The guilt of Ephraim is stored up,
    his sins are kept on record.(AE)
13 Pains as of a woman in childbirth(AF) come to him,
    but he is a child without wisdom;
when the time(AG) arrives,
    he doesn’t have the sense to come out of the womb.(AH)

14 “I will deliver this people from the power of the grave;(AI)
    I will redeem them from death.(AJ)
Where, O death, are your plagues?
    Where, O grave, is your destruction?(AK)

“I will have no compassion,
15     even though he thrives(AL) among his brothers.
An east wind(AM) from the Lord will come,
    blowing in from the desert;
his spring will fail
    and his well dry up.(AN)
His storehouse will be plundered(AO)
    of all its treasures.
16 The people of Samaria(AP) must bear their guilt,(AQ)
    because they have rebelled(AR) against their God.
They will fall by the sword;(AS)
    their little ones will be dashed(AT) to the ground,
    their pregnant women(AU) ripped open.”[b]

13 When Ephraim spake trembling, he exalted himself in Israel; but when he offended in Baal, he died.

And now they sin more and more, and have made them molten images of their silver, and idols according to their own understanding, all of it the work of the craftsmen: they say of them, Let the men that sacrifice kiss the calves.

Therefore they shall be as the morning cloud and as the early dew that passeth away, as the chaff that is driven with the whirlwind out of the floor, and as the smoke out of the chimney.

Yet I am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought.

According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me.

Therefore I will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I observe them:

I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.

O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.

10 I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?

11 I gave thee a king in mine anger, and took him away in my wrath.

12 The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid.

13 The sorrows of a travailing woman shall come upon him: he is an unwise son; for he should not stay long in the place of the breaking forth of children.

14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.

15 Though he be fruitful among his brethren, an east wind shall come, the wind of the Lord shall come up from the wilderness, and his spring shall become dry, and his fountain shall be dried up: he shall spoil the treasure of all pleasant vessels.

16 Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.
