11 Ephraim is (A)oppressed, crushed in judgment,
    because he was determined to go after filth.[a]
12 But I am (B)like a moth to Ephraim,
    and (C)like dry rot to the house of Judah.

13 When Ephraim saw his sickness,
    and Judah (D)his wound,
then Ephraim went (E)to Assyria,
    and sent to the great king.[b]
(F)But he is not able to cure you
    or heal (G)your wound.
