About this time Hazael king of Aram went up and attacked Gath and captured it. Then he turned to attack Jerusalem.
Then take an iron pan, place it as an iron wall between you and the city and turn your face toward it. It will be under siege, and you shall besiege it. This will be a sign to the people of Israel.
Turn your face toward the siege of Jerusalem and with bared arm prophesy against her.
they all come intent on violence. Their hordes advance like a desert wind and gather prisoners like sand.
