Hosea 5:11-13 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

11 Israel was brutally crushed.
They got what they deserved
    for worshiping useless idols.[a]
12 Now I, the Lord,
will fill Israel with maggots
    and make Judah rot.
13 When Israel and Judah saw
    their sickness and wounds,
Israel asked help from Assyria
    and its mighty king.[b]

But the king cannot cure them
    or heal their wounds.
