and the head of Ephraim is Samaria,
and the head of Samaria is Remaliah’s son.
If you will not believe,
surely you will not be established.’” Bible

“the head of Ephraim is Samaria.” The capital city of “Ephraim” (Israel), is Samaria (see commentary on Isa. 7:2). And the king in Samaria was Pekah, the son of Remaliah.
