Hosea 5:11-13 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

11 Ephraim is oppressed—crushed by punishment,
    because its people are determined to chase idols.[a]
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.[b]
            But the king couldn’t cure them or heal their wounds.
