20 Si filius honorabilis mihi Ephraim,
si puer delicatus!
quia ex quo locutus sum de eo,
adhuc recordabor ejus.
Idcirco conturbata sunt viscera mea super eum:
miserans miserebor ejus, ait Dominus.

Ephraïm n'est‑il pas mon cher fils
Language: French (Français)  after the Latin 
Ephraïm n'est-il pas mon cher fils
et mon enfant chéri ?
Car je me rappelle bien encore de
ce que j'ai dit de lui ;
c'est pour cela que mon cœur se brise pour lui,
que je dois avoir pitié de lui , dit le Seigneur.
