Ephraim has mixed itself like flour 1  among the nations; Ephraim is like a ruined cake of bread that is scorched on one side. 2 

NET © Notes

tn The words “like flour” are not in the Hebrew text, but are implied by the imagery.

tn Heb “a cake of bread not turned.” This metaphor compares Ephraim to a ruined cake of bread that was not turned over in time to avoid being scorched and burned (see BDB 728 s.v. עֻגָה). Cf. NLT “as worthless as a half-baked cake.”
