"In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise.
The invader will do as he pleases; no one will be able to stand against him. He will establish himself in the Beautiful Land and will have the power to destroy it.
He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand.
