7 But the Lord God says, “Their plan will not succeed. It will not happen 8 because Aram depends on its capital Damascus, and Damascus is led by its weak king Rezin. And don’t worry about Ephraim. Within 65 years it will be crushed, no longer a nation. 9 Ephraim depends on its capital Samaria, and Samaria is led by Remaliah’s son. So you have no reason to fear. Believe this, or you will not survive.”Read full chapter
New International Version
7 Yet this is what the Sovereign Lord says:(A)
“‘It will not take place,
it will not happen,(B)
8 for the head of Aram is Damascus,(C)
and the head of Damascus is only Rezin.(D)
Within sixty-five years
Ephraim will be too shattered(E) to be a people.
9 The head of Ephraim is Samaria,(F)
and the head of Samaria is only Remaliah’s son.
If you do not stand(G) firm in your faith,(H)
you will not stand at all.’”(I)
