You will stumble in the day,
and the prophet will also stumble with you in the night,
and I will destroy your mother. Bible see other translations

“destroy your mother.” In this case, the “mother” is the whole nation, the nation as a whole, who has given birth to the rebellious Israelites of the time. That did happen when Assyria conquered and carried away the nation of Israel.
