    when (E)I restore the fortunes of my people.

Ephraim shall become a desolation
    in the day of punishment;
among the tribes of Israel
    I make known what is sure.
10 The princes of Judah have become
    like (A)those who move the landmark;
upon them I will pour out
    my wrath like water.
11 Ephraim is (B)oppressed, crushed in judgement,
    because he was determined to go after filth.[a]
12 But I am (C)like a moth to Ephraim,
    and (D)like dry rot to the house of Judah.
13 When Ephraim saw his sickness,
    and Judah (E)his wound,
then Ephraim went (F)to Assyria,
    and sent to the great king.[b]
(G)But he is not able to cure you
    or heal (H)your wound.
14 For I will be (I)like a lion to (J)Ephraim,
    and like a young lion to the house of (K)Judah.
(L)I, even I, will tear and go away;
    I will carry off, and no one shall rescue.
