2 c Thogh I admonish them continually by my Prophetes.

2 b Notwithstanding they semed to be giuen altogether to holines, & to sacrifices, which here he calleth slaughter in contempt.

3 d They boasted them selues not onely to be Israelites, but also Ephraimites, because their King Jeroboam came of that tribe.

13 m In stead of seking for remedie at Gods hand.

13 ! The helpe of man is in vaine.

13 n Who was King of the Assyrians.
