How can I give you up, Ephraim?
How can I hand you over, Israel?
How can I make you like Admah?
How can I make you like Zeboiim?
My heart is turned within me,
my compassion is aroused.
“How can I make you like Admah...Zeboiim.” Admah and Zeboiim were two cities close to Sodom and Gomorrah which were destroyed along with Sodom and Gomorrah (cp. Deut. 29:23).
