41 You shall father sons and daughters, but they shall not be yours, for sthey shall go into captivity.
13 Ephraim, has I have seen, was like a young palm planted in a meadow;
but eEphraim must lead his children out to slaughter.
16 Ephraim is stricken;
mtheir root is dried up;
they shall bear no fruit.
Even nthough they give birth,
eI will put their beloved children to death.
