11 E′phraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment,
    because he was determined to go after vanity.[a]
12 Therefore I am like a moth to E′phraim,
    and like dry rot to the house of Judah.

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