A.(13)When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.
B.(14) For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.
C.(15) I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face:
D. in their affliction they will seek me early.
C’.(1) Come, and let us return unto the LORD:
B’. for he hath torn,
A’. and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
