“His rock [his stronghold] will pass away because of panic, And his princes will be terrified at the [sight of the battle] standard,” Declares the Lord, whose fire is in Zion and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
[In his flight] he shall pass beyond his rock [refuge and stronghold] because of terror; even his officers shall desert the standard in fear and panic, says the Lord, Whose fire is in Zion and Whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
Their place of safety will be destroyed. Their leaders will be defeated, and they will abandon their flag. The Lord, whose fireplace is on Zion and whose oven is in Jerusalem, is the one who said this.
·They will panic, and [From terror] their ·protection [or strong ones; rock] will be destroyed. Their ·commanders [officers; princes] will be terrified when they see ·God’s battle flag [L the standard/flag],” says the Lord, whose fire is in ·Jerusalem [L Zion; 1:27] and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
Their emperor will run away in terror, and the officers will be so frightened that they will abandon their battle flags.” The Lord has spoken—the Lord who is worshiped in Jerusalem and whose fire burns there for sacrifices.
They will panic, and their place of safety will be destroyed. Their commanders will be terrified when they see God’s battle flag.” The Lord said all these things. The Lord’s fire is in Jerusalem. His furnace is in Jerusalem.
Their stronghold will vanish by reason of terror, and their commanders will be filled with alarm because of the battle standard,” declares the Lord, whose fire is in Zion and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
“Assyrians will fall dead, killed by a sword-thrust but not by a soldier, laid low by a sword not swung by a mortal. Assyrians will run from that sword, run for their lives, and their prize young men made slaves. Terrorized, that rock-solid people will fall to pieces, their leaders scatter hysterically.” God’s Decree on Assyria. His fire blazes in Zion, his furnace burns hot in Jerusalem.
They will panic, and their protection will be destroyed. Their commanders will be terrified when they see God’s battle flag,” says the Lord, whose fire is in Jerusalem and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.
They will surrender their stronghold because of fear; their officers will be afraid of the Lord’s battle flag.” This is what the Lord says— the one whose fire is in Zion, whose firepot is in Jerusalem.
Their hiding places will be destroyed when terror strikes them. Their commanders will see their enemy’s battle flags. Then they will be filled with panic,” announces the Lord. His fire blazes out from Mount Zion. His furnace burns in Jerusalem.
Fear will cause them to surrender their high fortress, and they will panic at the sight of princes, and desert their battle flag,” says the Lord God of the fire that burns in Zion and whose furnace burns in Jerusalem!
The very thing the Assyrians thought was permanent will disappear into thin air, fleeing in fear; And the discipline of their military will come to nothing. They’ll panic and run. This is what the Eternal, whose fire burns in Zion, whose furnace blazes in Jerusalem, has said.
and the strength of him shall pass from fearedfulness, and his princes fleeing shall dread. The Lord said, whose fire is in Zion, and his chimney is in Jerusalem. (and his strength shall pass away because of fearfulness, and his fleeing leaders shall have great fear. Thus saith the Lord, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace is in Jerusalem.)
