New Century Version
12 I am like a moth to Israel,
like a rot to the people of Judah.
13 “When Israel saw its illness
and Judah saw its wounds,
Israel went to Assyria for help
and sent to the great king of Assyria.
But he cannot heal you
or cure your wounds.
14 I will be like a lion to Israel,
like a young lion to Judah.
I will attack them
and tear them to pieces.
I will drag them off,
and no one will be able to save them.
New International Version
13 “When Ephraim(C) saw his sickness,
and Judah his sores,
then Ephraim turned to Assyria,(D)
and sent to the great king for help.(E)
But he is not able to cure(F) you,
not able to heal your sores.(G)
14 For I will be like a lion(H) to Ephraim,
like a great lion to Judah.
I will tear them to pieces(I) and go away;
I will carry them off, with no one to rescue them.(J)
