The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side.
"For the days will come upon you when your enemies will throw up a barricade against you, and surround you and hem you in on every side,
Before long your enemies will build ramparts against your walls and encircle you and close in on you.
In the days ahead your enemies are going to bring up their heavy artillery and surround you, pressing in from every side.
For the time will come when your attackers will put a wall round you, and come all round you and keep you in on every side,
Indeed, the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up ramparts around you and surround you, and hem you in on every side.
"For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side,
on every side
