The army will go over the pass. The soldiers will ·sleep [camp; lodge] at Geba. ·The people of Ramah will be afraid [L Ramah trembles], ·and the people at Gibeah of Saul will run away [L Gibeah of Saul flees; 1 Sam. 11:4].
Look, the mighty armies of Assyria are coming! Now they are at Aiath, now at Migron; they are storing some of their equipment at Michmash and crossing over the pass; they are staying overnight at Geba. Fear strikes the city of Ramah; all the people of Gibeah—the city of Saul—are running for their lives.

Gibeah of Saul has run off. Cry for help, daughter of Gallim! Listen to her, Laishah! Do something, Anathoth! Madmenah takes to the hills. The people of Gebim flee in panic. The enemy’s soon at Nob—nearly there! In sight of the city he shakes his fist At the mount of dear daughter Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
