The distress and captivity of Israel for their sins and idolatry.
 Rejoice not, O Israel: rejoice not as the nations do: for thou hast committed fornication against thy God, thou hast loved a reward upon every cornfloor.
Noli laetari, Israel; noli exsultare sicut populi : quia fornicatus es a Deo tuo; dilexisti mercedem super omnes areas tritici.
 The floor and the winepress shall not feed them, and the wine shall deceive them.
Area et torcular non pascet eos, et vinum mentietur eis :
 They shall not dwell in the Lord's land: Ephraim is returned to Egypt, and hath eaten unclean things among the Assyrians.
non habitabunt in terra Domini. Reversus est Ephraim in Aegyptum, et in Assyriis pollutum comedit.
 They shall not offer wine to the Lord, neither shall they please him: their sacrifices shall be like the bread of mourners: all that shall eat it shall be defiled: for their bread is life for their soul, it shall not enter into the house of the Lord.
Non libabunt Domino vinum, et non placebunt ei. Sacrificia eorum quasi panis lugentium; omnes qui comedent eum, contaminabuntur : quia panis eorum animae ipsorum : non intrabit in domum Domini.
 What will you do in the solemn day, in the day of the feast of the Lord?
Quid facietis in die solemni, in die festivitatis Domini?
 For behold they are gone because of destruction: Egypt shall gather them together, Memphis shall bury them: nettles shall inherit their beloved silver, the bur shall be in their tabernacles.
Ecce enim profecti sunt a vastitate : Aegyptus congregabit eos; Memphis sepeliet eos : desiderabile argentum eorum urtica haereditabit, lappa in tabernaculis eorum.
 The days of visitation are come, the days of repaying are come: know ye, O Israel, that the prophet was foolish, the spiritual man was mad, for the multitude of thy iniquity, and the multitude of thy madness.
Venerunt dies visitationis, venerunt dies retributionis. Scitote, Israel, stultum prophetam, insanum virum spiritualem, propter multitudinem iniquitatis tuae, et multitudine amentiae.
 The watchman of Ephraim was with my God: the prophet is become a snare of ruin upon all his ways, madness is in the house of his God.
Speculator Ephraim cum Deo meo, propheta laqueus ruinae factus est super omnes vias ejus; insania in domo Dei ejus.
 They have sinned deeply, as in the days of Gabaa: he will remember their iniquity, and will visit their sin.
Profunde peccaverunt, sicut in diebus Gabaa. Recordabitur iniquitatis eorum, et visitabit peccata eorum.
 I found Israel like grapes in the desert, I saw their fathers like the firstfruits of the fig tree in the top thereof: but they went in to Beelphegor, and alienated themselves to that confusion, and became abominable, as those things were, which they loved.
Quasi uvas in deserto inveni Israel, quasi prima poma ficulneae in cacumine ejus vidi patres eorum : ipsi autem intraverunt ad Beelphegor, et abalienati sunt in confusionem, et facti sunt abominabiles sicut ea quae dilexerunt.
 As for Ephraim, their glory hath flown away like a bird from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception.
Ephraim quasi avis avolavit; gloria eorum a partu, et ab utero, et a conceptu.
 And though they should bring up their children, I will make them without children among men: yea, and woe to them, when I shall depart from them.
Quod etsi enutrierint filios suos, absque liberis eos faciam in hominibus; sed et vae eis cum recessero ab eis!
 Ephraim, as I saw, was a Tyre founded in beauty: and Ephraim shall bring out his children to the murderer.
Ephraim, ut vidi, Tyrus erat fundata in pulchritudine; et Ephraim educet ad interfectorem filios suos.
 Give them, O Lord. What wilt thou give them? Give them a womb without children, and dry breasts.
Da eis, Domine. Quid dabis eis? da eis vulvam sine liberis, et ubera arentia.
 All their wickedness is in Galgal, for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their devices I will cast them forth out of my house: I will love them no more, all their princes are revolters.
Omnes nequitiae eorum in Galgal, quia ibi exosos habui eos. Propter malitiam adinventionum eorum, de domo mea ejiciam eos; non addam ut diligam eos : omnes principes eorum recedentes.
 Ephraim is struck, their root is dried up, they shall yield no fruit. And if they should have issue, I will slay the best beloved fruit of their womb.
Percussus est Ephraim; radix eorum exsiccata est : fructum nequaquam facient, quod etsi genuerint, interficiam amantissima uteri eorum.
 My God will cast them away, because they hearkened not to him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations.
Abjiciet eos Deus meus, quia non audierunt eum, et erunt vagi in nationibus.
