Like grapes in the wilderness,

and became detestable like the thing they loved.

Give them, O LORD
what will you give?
Give them a miscarrying womb
and dry breasts.

Every evil of theirs is in Gilgal;
there I began to hate them.
Because of the wickedness of their deeds

Even though they give birth,
I will put their beloved children to death.

because they have not listened to him;
they shall be wanderers among the nations.
