Common English Bible
11 Ephraim is under pressure from its enemies;
Ephraim’s rights aren’t protected.
This is because Ephraim chose to pursue worthless things.
12 Therefore, I am like a moth to Ephraim,
and like decay to the house of Judah.
13 When Ephraim saw his sickness,
and Judah his wound,
then Ephraim went to Assyria,
and Ephraim sent for the great king.
But he could not heal them;
nor could he cure their wound.
