You will leave by going straight through the breaks in the wall; you will be thrown from your fortresses. I, the LORD, have spoken!
They'll drag you through the ruined city walls, forcing you out single file, And kick you to kingdom come." GOD's Decree.
And you will go out through the broken places, every one going straight before her, and you will be sent into Harmon, says the Lord.
Through breaches in the wall you shall leave, each one straight ahead; and you shall be flung out into Harmon, says the LORD.
You will go out through broken walls , Each one straight ahead of her, And you will be cast into Harmon," Says the LORD.

1 tn Heb “and [through the] breaches you will go out, each straight ahead.”
2 tn The Hiphil verb form has no object. It may be intransitive (F. I. Andersen and D. N. Freedman, Amos [AB], 425), though many emend it to a Hophal.
3 tn The meaning of this word is unclear. Many understand it as a place name, though such a location is not known. Some (e.g., H. W. Wolff, Joel and Amos [Hermeneia[, 204) emend to “Hermon” or to similarly written words, such as “the dung heap” (NEB, NJPS), “the garbage dump” (NCV), or “the fortress” (cf. NLT “your fortresses”).
