7 xWhen I would heal Israel,
the iniquity of Ephraim is revealed,
and the evil deeds of ySamaria;
for zthey deal falsely;
the thief breaks in,
and the bandits raid outside.
7 All of them are hot as an oven,
and they devour their rulers.
All htheir kings ihave fallen,
and none of them calls upon me.
