New International Version
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.

Pharaoh with his mighty army and great horde will be of no help to him in war, when ramps are built and siege works erected to destroy many lives.
"In those times many will rise against the king of the South. Those who are violent among your own people will rebel in fulfillment of the vision, but without success.
