New International Version

Darby Bible Translation

Watching the Horizon
For the king of the North will muster another army, larger than the first; and after several years, he will advance with a huge army fully equipped.
Then the king of the North will come and build up siege ramps and will capture a fortified city. The forces of the South will be powerless to resist; even their best troops will not have the strength to stand.
