9 4 They shall not pour libations of wine to Yahweh;
and they shall not please him with their sacrifices.
Their bread shall be like mourners' bread;
all who eat of it shall be defiled;
for their bread shall be for their hunger only;
it shall not come to the house of Yahweh.
9 5 What will you do on the day of appointed festival,
and on the day of the feast of Yahweh?
9 6 For behold, they are going to Assyria;
Egypt shall gather them,
Memphis shall bury them.
Nettles shall possess their precious things of silver;
thorns shall be in their tents.
9 7 The days of punishment have come,
the days of recompense have come;
Israel shall know it.
The prophet is a fool,
the man of the spirit is mad,
because of your great iniquity
and great hatred.
9 8 The prophet is the watchman of Ephraim,
the people of my God,
yet a fowler's snare is on all his ways,
and hatred in the house of his God.
9 9 They have deeply corrupted themselves
as in the days of Gibeah:
he will remember their iniquity,
he will punish their sins.
