Fortified cities will disappear from Ephraim, and Damascus will lose its kingdom. 1 The survivors in Syria will end up like the splendor of the Israelites,” says the Lord who commands armies.
In Tahpanhes the day will be dark 1 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.
I will turn the land into a desolate ruin; her confident pride will come to an end. The mountains of Israel will be so desolate no one will pass through them.
