God’s Anger with Israel’s Arrogance


The Lord sends a word (message) against Jacob,
And it falls on Israel [the ten northern tribes, the kingdom of Ephraim].

And all the people know it,
That is, [a]Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria [its capital],
Who say in pride and arrogance of heart:
10 
“The bricks have fallen down,
But we will rebuild [all the better] with ashlar (hewed stones);
The sycamores have been cut down,
But we will replace them with [expensive] cedars.”
