The women shall come, and set them on fire, for it is a people of no understanding. Therefore he who made them will not have compassion upon them, and he who formed them 12 And it shall come to pass in that day, that LORD will beat off [his fruit], from the flood of the River to the brook of Egypt. And ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye sons of Israel.
