9 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage Biblia Hebraica

17My God shall reject them,
because they have not listened to him,
and they shall become Wanderers among the nations.
The prophet speaks about Israel. Hs.9.17-10:8יִמְאָסֵם אֱלֹהַי כִּי לֹא שָׁמְעוּ לֹו וְיִהְיוּ נֹדְדִים בַּגֹּויִם׃ ס
10 1Israel is like a rank vine
ripening its fruit:
his fruit grows more and more, and more and more his altars;
the fairer his land becomes, the fairer he makes his sacred pillars.
 גֶּפֶן בֹּוקֵק יִשְׂרָאֵל פְּרִי יְשַׁוֶּה־לֹּו
כְּרֹב לְפִרְיֹו הִרְבָּה לַמִּזְבְּחֹות
כְּטֹוב לְאַרְצֹו הֵיטִיבוּ מַצֵּבֹות׃
2They are crazy now, they are mad.
God himself will hack down their altars
and wreck their sacred pillars.
 חָלַק לִבָּם עַתָּה יֶאְשָׁמוּ
הוּא יַעֲרֹף מִזְבְּחֹותָם יְשֹׁדֵד מַצֵּבֹותָם׃
3Well may they say, 'We have no king,
for we do not fear the LORD;
and what can the king do for us?'
 כִּי עַתָּה יֹאמְרוּ אֵין מֶלֶךְ לָנוּ
כִּי לֹא יָרֵאנוּ אֶת־יְהוָה וְהַמֶּלֶךְ מַה־יַּעֲשֶׂה־לָּנוּ׃
4There is nothing but talk,
imposing of oaths and making of treaties, all to no purpose;
and litigation spreads like a poisonous weed
along the furrows of the fields.
 דִּבְּרוּ דְבָרִים אָלֹות שָׁוְא כָּרֹת בְּרִית
וּפָרַח כָּרֹאשׁ מִשְׁפָּט עַל תַּלְמֵי שָׂדָי׃
5The inhabitants of Samaria tremble for the calf-god of Beth-aven;
the people mourn over it the people mourn over it: or the high god and his people mourn and its priestlings howl,
distressed for their image, their glory,
which is carried away into exile.
 לְעֶגְלֹות בֵּית אָוֶן יָגוּרוּ שְׁכַן שֹׁמְרֹון
כִּי־אָבַל עָלָיו עַמֹּו וּכְמָרָיו עָלָיו
יָגִילוּ עַל־כְּבֹודֹו כִּי־גָלָה מִמֶּנּוּ׃
6It shall be carried to Assyria
as tribute to the Great King;
disgrace shall overtake Ephraim
and Israel shall feel the shame of their disobedience.
 גַּם־אֹותֹו לְאַשּׁוּר יוּבָל מִנְחָה לְמֶלֶךְ יָרֵב
בָּשְׁנָה אֶפְרַיִם יִקָּח וְיֵבֹושׁ יִשְׂרָאֵל מֵעֲצָתֹו׃
7Samaria and her king are swept away
like flotsam on the water;
 נִדְמֶה שֹׁמְרֹון מַלְכָּהּ כְּקֶצֶף עַל־פְּנֵי־מָיִם׃
8the hill-shrines of Aven are wiped out,
the shrines where Israel sinned;
thorns and thistles grow over her altars.
So they will say to the mountains, 'Cover us',
and to the hills, 'Fall on us.'
 וְנִשְׁמְדוּ בָּמֹות אָוֶן חַטַּאת יִשְׂרָאֵל
קֹוץ וְדַרְדַּר יַעֲלֶה עַל־מִזְבְּחֹותָם
וְאָמְרוּ לֶהָרִים כַּסּוּנוּ וְלַגְּבָעֹות נִפְלוּ עָלֵינוּ׃ ס
