Punishment for Israel

Do not rejoice, Israel;
    do not be jubilant like the other nations.

For you have been unfaithful to your God;
    you love the wages of a prostitute
    at every threshing floor.

Threshing floors and winepresses will not feed the people;
    the new wine will fail them.

They will not remain in the Lord’s land;
    Ephraim will return to Egypt
    and eat unclean food in Assyria.
They will not pour out wine offerings to the Lord,
    nor will their sacrifices please him.
Such sacrifices will be to them like the bread of mourners;
    all who eat them will be unclean.
