11 Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment because he wanted to walk after commandments.

12 Therefore I will be unto Ephraim as a moth and to the house of Judah as rottenness.

13 And Ephraim shall see his sickness and Judah his wound; then Ephraim shall go to the Assyrian and shall send to King Jareb; yet he shall not be able to heal you, nor cure you of your wound.

11 Ephraim is oppressed,
    trampled in judgment,
    intent on pursuing idols.[a](A)
12 I am like a moth(B) to Ephraim,
    like rot(C) to the people of Judah.

13 “When Ephraim(D) saw his sickness,

then Ephraim turned to Assyria,(E)
    and sent to the great king for help.(F)
But he is not able to cure(G) you,
    not able to heal your sores.(H)
