29 They are crossing the pass and 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.
30 Well may you scream in terror, you people of Gallim! Shout out a warning to Laishah, for the mighty army comes. Poor Anathoth, what a fate is yours!
31 There go the people of Madmenah, all fleeing. And the citizens of Gebim are preparing to run.
32 But the enemy stops at Nob for the rest of that day. He shakes his fist at Mount Zion in Jerusalem.
33 But look! The Lord, the LORD Almighty, will chop down the mighty tree! He will destroy all that vast army of Assyria--officers and high officials alike.
34 The Mighty One will cut down the enemy as an ax cuts down the forest trees in Lebanon.
Read Isaiah 11
