As for Ephraim, their glory will fly away like a bird. There will be no birth, none with child, and no conception.

Young's Literal Translation
Ephraim is as a fowl, Fly away doth their honour, without birth, And without womb, and without conception.

Hosea 9:11 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Their glory shall fly away - It shall suddenly spring away from them, and return no more.

From the birth - "So that there shall be no birth, no carrying in the womb, no conception." - Newcome. They shall cease to glory in their numbers; for no children shall be born, no woman shall be pregnant, for none shall conceive. Here judgment blasts the very germs of population.
