HOSEA 1212:1 Ephraim feeds on the windand pursues the east wind all day long;they multiply falsehood and violence;they make a covenant with Assyria,and oil is carried to Egypt. The Lord’s Indictment of Israel and Judah2 The Lord has an indictment against Judahand will punish Jacob according to his ways;he will repay him according to his deeds. 3 In the womb he took his brother by the heel,and in his manhood he strove with God. 4 He strove with the angel and prevailed;he wept and sought his favor.He met God at Bethel,and there God spoke with us— 5 the Lord, the God of hosts,the Lord is his memorial name: 6 “So you, by the help of your God, return,hold fast to love and justice,and wait continually for your God.”
