How can I give you up, O Ephraim?
How can I surrender you, O Israel?
How can I give you over to be like Admah?
How can I make you like Zeboiim?
My heart is turned over within Me;
All My compassions are stirred. 9
I will not execute My burning anger;
I will not make Ephraim a ruin again.
For I am God and not man, the Holy One in your midst,
And I will not come in wrath.
