13 When Ephraim saw his sicknessand Judah his wound,Ephraim went to Assyria(A)and sent a delegation to the great king.[a](B)But he cannot cure you or heal your wound.(C)
11 So Ephraim has become like a silly, senseless dove;(A)they call to Egypt,(B) and they go to Assyria.(C)
9 For they have gone up to Assyria(A)like a wild donkey going off on its own.Ephraim has paid for love.(B)
