CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible

"For the head of Aram is Damascus and the head of Damascus is Rezin (now within another 65 years Ephraim will be shattered, so that it is no longer a people),
and the head of Ephraim is Samaria and the head of Samaria is the son of Remaliah. If you will not believe, you surely shall not last."'"
The Lord sends a message against Jacob, And it falls on Israel.
Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephraim, And to the fading flower of its glorious beauty, Which is at the head of the fertile valley Of those who are overcome with wine!
The proud crown of the drunkards of Ephraim is trodden under foot.
"Listen to Me, you stubborn-minded, Who are far from righteousness.
