30:16 I will ignite a fire in Egypt;
Syene 1 will writhe in agony,
Thebes will be broken down,
and Memphis will face enemies every day.
and the cities will go 3 into captivity.
when I break the yoke of Egypt there.
Her confident pride will cease within her;
a cloud will cover her, and her daughters will go into captivity.
2 sn On and Pi-beseth are generally identified with the Egyptian cities of Heliopolis and Bubastis.
3 tn Heb “they will go.” The pronoun and verb are feminine plural, indicating that the cities just mentioned are the antecedent of the pronoun and the subject of the verb. The translation makes this clear by stating the subject as “the cities.”
