Hosea 5:12-14 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
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.
But he is not able to cure you
or heal your wound.
14 For I will be like a lion to E′phraim,
and like a young lion to the house of Judah.
I, even I, will rend and go away,
I will carry off, and none shall rescue.
