11 Ephraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment,
    because he was determined to go after vanity.[a]
12 Therefore I am like maggots to Ephraim,
    and like rottenness to the house of Judah.

    and Judah his wound,
then Ephraim went to Assyria,
    and sent to the great king.[b]
But he is not able to cure you
    or heal your wound.
