Ephraim Faces Punishment

2 Threshing floor and wine press will not feed them, And the new wine will fail them. 3 They will not remain in the LORD'S land, But Ephraim will return to Egypt, And in Assyria they will eat unclean food. 4 They will not pour out drink offerings of wine to the LORD, Their sacrifices will not please Him Their bread will be like mourners' bread; All who eat of it will be defiled, For their bread will be for themselves alone; It will not enter the house of the LORD.
