Context Readings

Ephraim Bereaved Of Offspring

9 They have arrived at the depths, they have corrupted themselves as in the days of Gibeah; therefore he will remember their iniquity, he will visit their sin. 10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the early fruit of the fig tree in her beginning; but they went in unto Baalpeor and separated themselves unto shame and made themselves as abominable as that which they loved. 11 As for Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird, from the birth even from the womb and from the conception.
