The "rebellion" in question is clearly found in the desire of Israel to turn to Egypt for aid, and not to God (verses 2, 3, 7). The Hebrew phrase rendered "cover with a covering," implies strictly the pouring out of a libation, or sacrificial offering, in confirmation of an agreement, or covenant. The Revised Standard Version reads: " 'Woe to the rebellious children' says the Lord, 'who carry out a plan, but not mine; and who make a league, but not of my spirit.' "
They have sought out many inventions (Eccl. 7:29)
