Hosea 5:12-14 Modern English Version (MEV)

12 Therefore I will be like pus to Ephraim
    and like rottenness to the house of Judah.

13 When Ephraim saw his sickness
    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.
14 For I will be like a lion to Ephraim
    and like a young lion to the house of Judah.
I, Myself, will tear and go away.
    I will carry off, and no one will rescue.

Hosea 5:12-14 New International Version (NIV)

12 I am like a moth to Ephraim,
    like rot to the people of Judah.

13 “When Ephraim saw his sickness,
    and Judah his sores,
then Ephraim turned to Assyria,
    and sent to the great king for help.
But he is not able to cure you,
    not able to heal your sores.
14 For I will be like a lion to Ephraim,
    like a great lion to Judah.
I will tear them to pieces and go away;
    I will carry them off, with no one to rescue them.
