Hosea 5:12-14 Names of God Bible (NOG)

12 I will destroy Ephraim as a moth destroys clothing.
    I will destroy the nation of Judah as rot destroys wood.

13 “When Ephraim saw that he was sick
    and when Judah saw his own wounds,
        Ephraim went to Assyria to ask the great king for help.[a]
            But the king couldn’t cure them or heal their wounds.
14 I will be like a lion to Ephraim
    and like a young lion to the nation of Judah.
    I will carry them off, and no one will rescue them.


  1. Hosea 5:13 Or “to ask King Jareb for help.”

Hosea 5:12-14 New International Version (NIV)

12 I am like a moth to Ephraim,
    like rot to the people of Judah.

13 “When Ephraim saw his sickness,
    and Judah his sores,
then Ephraim turned to Assyria,
    and sent to the great king for help.
But he is not able to cure you,
    not able to heal your sores.
14 For I will be like a lion to Ephraim,
    like a great lion to Judah.
I will tear them to pieces and go away;
    I will carry them off, with no one to rescue them.
