11:3 And I it was that taught Ephraim to walk,He took them upon his arms,but they knew not that I healed them.
11:4 I drew them with bands of a man, with cords of love; and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I gently caused them to eat.
11:5 ¶ He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king; for they refused to return [to me];
11:6 and the sword shall turn about in his cities, and shall consume his bars, and devour [them], because of their own counsels.
11:7 Yea, my people are bent upon backsliding from me: though they call them to the Most High, none at all exalteth [him].
11:8 How shall I give thee over, Ephraim? [how] shall I deliver thee up, Israel? how shall I make thee as Admah? [how] shall I set thee as Zeboim? My heart is turned within me, my repentings are kindled together.
