The King’s name is the Lord ·All-Powerful [Almighty; of Heaven’s Armies; T of hosts]. He says, “As surely as I live, one [C a powerful leader] will come. He will be like Mount Tabor among the mountains, like Mount Carmel by the sea [C distinctive and majestic mountains].
The King’s name is the Lord of heaven’s armies. He says, “As surely as I live, a powerful leader will come. He will be strong as great Mount Tabor is higher than other mountains. He will be mighty as Mount Carmel is higher than the sea.
“Why will your bull-god Apis run off? Because God will drive him off. Your ragtag army will fall to pieces. The word is passing through the ranks, ‘Let’s get out of here while we still can. Let’s head for home and save our skins.’ When they get home they’ll nickname Pharaoh ‘Big-Talk-Bad-Luck.’ As sure as I am the living God” —the King’s Decree, God-of-the-Angel-Armies is his name— “A conqueror is coming: like Tabor, singular among mountains; like Carmel, jutting up from the sea! So pack your bags for exile, you coddled daughters of Egypt, For Memphis will soon be nothing, a vacant lot grown over with weeds.
I the King, whose name is the Lord who rules over all, swear this: I swear as surely as I live that a conqueror is coming. He will be as imposing as Mount Tabor is among the mountains, as Mount Carmel is against the backdrop of the sea.
“I am the King. My name is the Lord Who Rules Over All. Someone will come who is like Mount Tabor among the mountains. He is like Mount Carmel by the Mediterranean Sea. And that is just as sure as I am alive,” announces the King.
I live, saith the king, the Lord of hosts is his name; for it shall come as Tabor in hills, and as Carmel in the sea. (As I live, saith the King, whose name is the Lord of hosts; for he shall come as surely as Tabor is in the hills, and that Carmel is by the sea.)
