I will love them no more; All their princes are rebels. 16 Ephraim is stricken, their root is dried up, They will bear no fruit Even though they bear children, I will slay the precious ones of their womb. 17 My God will cast them away Because they have not listened to Him; And they will be wanderers among the nations.
