Over the years, the royal daughter rejected her loving God, and the kingdom He gave her was split in two. Ephraim, (the Northern Kingdom) changed the beautiful crown to a Crown of Pride. She rejected His Covenant of Life and made a Covenant with Death. God brought punishment. The crown (the leadership) would be trampled and her beauty faded.
Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim,
Whose glorious beauty is a fading flower
Which is at the head of the verdant valleys,
To those who are overcome with wine!
2 Behold, the Lord has a mighty and strong one,
Like a tempest of hail and a destroying storm,
Like a flood of mighty waters overflowing,
Who will bring them down to the earth with His hand.
3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim,
Will be trampled underfoot;
4 And the glorious beauty is a fading flower
Which is at the head of the verdant valley,
Like the first fruit before the summer,
Which an observer sees;
He eats it up while it is still in his hand.
PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO REJECT THE COVENANT OF DEATH AND RECEIVE THE NEW COVENANT OF LIFE.
