11 Ephraim is oppressed
    and broken in judgment,
    because he eagerly followed after vanity.
12 Therefore I will be like pus to Ephraim
    and like rottenness to the house of Judah.

    and Judah saw his wound,
then Ephraim went to Assyria,
    and sent to King Jareb.[a]
Yet he cannot cure you
    or heal your wound.
