and they will live with their children, and will return.
and gather them out of Assyria,
and I will bring them into the land of Gilead
and there won’t be room enough for them.
and will strike the waves in the sea,
and all the depths of the Nile will dry up;
and the pride of Assyria will be brought down
and the scepter of Egypt will depart.
and they will walk up and down in his name,”
