Hosea 5:11-13 New English Translation (NET Bible)
11 Ephraim will be oppressed, crushed under judgment,
because he was determined to pursue worthless idols.
The Curse of the Incurable Wound
12 I will be like a moth to Ephraim,
like wood rot to the house of Judah.
13 When Ephraim saw his sickness
and Judah saw his wound,
then Ephraim turned to Assyria,
and begged its great king for help.
But he will not be able to heal you!
He cannot cure your wound!
